Reviews

PRAISE FOR RETURN OF THE THIN MAN "This first unabridged appearance of two Nick and Nora Charles 'novellas' by Hammett should be an occasion for delight, and it is." --The Wall Street Journal "Read Return of the Thin Man and rediscover why Dashiell Hammett was the peerless master of crime fiction in all its dark and bloody glory." --New York Journal of Books "A volume no fan of Hammett's, of Nick and Nora Charles, of 'The Thin Man' series should even think of doing without." --The Huffington Post PRAISE FOR DASHIELL HAMMETT "I think Hammett's stories are about the best there are." --Ross MacDonald "Hammett's prose was clean and entirely unique. His characters were as sharply and economically defined as any in American fiction." --The New York Times "Hammett . . . wrote scenes that seemed never to have been written before." --Raymond Chandler "The exuberance of language, the relish with which seedieness is described . . . it's a pleasure to imagine young Hammett cutting loose with whatever rascally high jinks he could cook up." --Margaret Atwood "An acknowledged literary landmark." --The New York Times Book Review
