Dashiell Hammett set the gold standard here for writers of Culture and Development in Africa (Comparative Studies in African/Caribbean Literature Series) detective fiction The fat man was flabbily fat with bulbous pink cheeks and lips and chins and neck with a great soft egg of a belly that was all his torso and pendant cones for arms and legs As he advanced to meet Spade all his bulbs rose and

fiction and through film adaptations of his stories film noir Humphrey Bogart played Sam Spade in the most famous adaptation of The Maltese Falcon in 1941 I had seen the film long ago and I remember

it again Sam Spade is the grandfather of all PIs in all noir in particular all Californian PIs Raymond Chandler s Philip Marlowe included Dashiell Hammett created the genre and most of its tropes Speaking about them this was my reread of the book and this time I was trying to count them as they appear For thoseoubting Hammett s paternity of noir I can say the following I found them all in here I might miss something but every single major trope is present Does it show its age Yes a little Is it still fun to read You bet it is In fact this book along with Red Harvest by the same author is responsible for my love of noir just like in several generations of readers before me It is most probably a safe bet to say that Sam Spade made Philip Marlowe possible While Hammett s prose is not as stylish as Chandler s nobody s prose is it is still uite good and Coming Out of Communism does not feel antiue My rating is 4 stars exactly the same as it wasuring my first read recommended to any
