    doc Ú San Francisco Noir ↠ Paperback ☆ tushnahram San Francisco NoirA disappointing read I mainly stuck with it because I bought it in SF on honeymoon There are a small number of good stories here but lots of the authors seem to think noir just means gritty with a side of sexual exploitation Noir is one of my favourite genres so this was rather disappointing Noir is hard to define but this treats it just as a style I think resulting in stories that by and large lack any emotional punch

    doc Ú San Francisco Noir ↠ Paperback ☆ tushnahram San Francisco NoirThis is the second book I'm reviewing in my exploration of Akashic Books' NOIR series Basic remit crime stories taking place in city x I say a little bit about the set up in my intro to the review of Brooklyn NoirIt's funny how many parameters one can apply to a critiue of this series If you know the city featured you can say does it remind me of there? If you don't know the city featured you can ask does this seem to evoke the verisimilitude of a place I've never been to? You can ask does this work as a crime story? as noted the definition of noir here is a bit catholic really meaning that a crime is featured in some way and not always relying on a jaded world view lurid purple prose gritty violence or a white knight castaway

    doc Ú San Francisco Noir ↠ Paperback ☆ tushnahram San Francisco NoirNoir to me brings up images of Philip Marlowe or some detective in a seedy office waiting for a client Not gonna find that here This is a collection of stories all based in neighborhoods of San Francisco which is what attracted me to the book Some of the stories are good; other stories didn't hold my interest A few were superb I enjoyed Larry's Place The Neutral Zone It Can Happen and The Prison the most No happy endings here

    doc Ú San Francisco Noir ↠ Paperback ☆ tushnahram San Francisco NoirEach of the short stories in this collection of noir fiction takes place in a different San Francisco neighborhood and together form a great review of the genre As expected some of the stories are unnecessarily bloody and violent In these stories the main character is usually the perpetrator or a victim or somehow tied to the crime but rarely the detective unlike Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe Sex plays a huge role and the characters are rarely likeable and always self destructive The dialogue is choppy but direct and the writing really manages to evoke a mood of dread and anticipation I uestion why I enjoy these stories so much There's just something about them despite the stereotypes and hopelessness I keep getting drawn in and left wanting

    doc Ú San Francisco Noir ↠ Paperback ☆ tushnahram San Francisco NoirAbout 75% of the stories in here are good The rest just seem to be filler Some of the bad ones tried really hard to identify physical places around the city just to prove it seems that their story really is set in SF It's like when an annoying movie is set in SF and the main character casually takes a cable car as public transportation UGHThat being said my FAVORITE story was The Other Barrio by Alejandro Murguia It could be because I'm Mexican and I was looking forward to a story set in the Mission Or it could be because Alejandro Murguia was a professor of mine when I did my undergrad But I like to think that bias never entered into my critiue LOL Either way that story was very interesting; it could easily be ma
