Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Smartphone photos are fine for most tourists, but when Austin Peay State University (APSU) student Amir Elraheb first experienced the splendor of Madrid, Spain, he pulled out his watercolors to truly capture the city.

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.
