APSU’s Dr. Osvaldo Di Paolo Harrison publishes research book on Puerto Rican hardboiled fiction

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – On the surface, hardboiled literature tells a story of street smart investigators, navigating a world filled with action, intrigue and sex. Cynical antiheroes fighting for justice in a world just as corrupt as the bad guys they are trying to collar.

At its core, the genre is a cracked door, allowing the reader an opportunity to examine the social issues of the writer’s day. Topics of race, politics, corruption and violence are sometimes uncomfortably explored by a character adhering to a moral code in a world that seems to have lost its way.
