Crime Uncovered PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Crime Uncovered free pdf There are few figures as captivating as the antihero: the character we can't help but root for, even as we turn away in revulsion from many of the things they do. What is it that draws us to characters like Breaking Bad's Walter White, Patricia Highsmith's Tom Ripley, and Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander even as we decry the trail of destruction they leave in their wake? Crime Uncovered: Antiherotackles that question and more. Mixing the popular and iconic, contemporary and ancient, the book explores the place and appeal of the antihero. Using figures from books, TV, film, and more, including such up-to-the-minute examples as True Detective's Rust Cole, the book places the antihero's actions within the society he or she is rejecting, showing how expectations and social and familial structures create the backdrop against which the antihero's posture becomes compelling. Featuring interviews with genre masters James Ellroy and Paul Johnston, Crime Uncovered: Antiherois an accessible, engaging analysis of what drives us to embrace those characters who acknowledge-or even flaunt-the dark side we all have somewhere deep inside.
