Tartan Noir PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Tartan Noir free pdf A fascinating, scholarly but highly accessible study of Scotland's world-renowned Tartan Noir literary movement, examining a number of high profile best-selling crime writers, from William McIlvaney, Stuart McBride, Caro Rasmay and Ian Rankin to Val McDermid, Quintin Jardine, Louise Welsh and many others. Based on the author's own research and in-depth interviews with many of the writers covered, Wanner delves deeply into what characterises and defines the Scottish police procedural and psycho killer novel at the heart of Tartan Noir, whilst also looking at the traditions and influences from wider Scottish literature. Doing for Tartan Noir what Barry Forshaw's ground-breaking Nordic Noir did for Scandi crime fiction, Len Wanner's book will be a fascinating companion for crime lovers and students of literature alike.

About Len Wanner

Len Wanner was born in the Alpine Republic of Bavaria in 1985. Nineteen years later, the only qualification he had in life was as a Lederhosen model, so he left the country. For untold reasons he sought a more respectable qualification in Ireland of all places, but then UCD gave him an English degree at the price of a Dublin accent and suddenly the leather pants seemed ridiculous. Unbroken in spirit and wardrobe, however, he moved to Scotland, a country with a long history and keen appreciation of sartorial grandeur and sexy accents. Since making that inspired decision, he has written a few books, married above his league, and fathered a love bomb of a wee man.
