Petits romans noirs irlandais


This anthology gathers a selection of Irish detective stories. It brings together 18 crime stories, mostly unpublished, of the greatest Irish writers: James Joyce, William Trevor, Liam O'Flaherty, Elizabeth Bowen, Brendan Behan, Lord Dunsany, Flann O'Brien, Sean O'Faolain, Nicholas Blake, and Peter Cheyney. Crimes of passion, detective stories, murders and burglaries are illustrated here by allusive, cruel, humorous, poetic, and sometimes tragic texts which will delight fans on the lookout for literary curiosities.
