Essay: The rise and rise of Florida crime fiction
»L.A. noir spoke to those far from California because readers recognized the hidden truth that the web of American corruption implicated everyone. All the great scandals of American life from the Second World War through Watergate involved some acknowledgment that sordid actuality and the shiny official imagery were, so to speak, scenes from one movie. Florida-glare novels speak to us because we see our current condition in the way that violence rises out of nowhere and is barely noticed.«
