Featured title: In a Lonely Place by Dorothy B. Hughes
A New York Review Books novel

A classic California noir with a feminist twist, this prescient 1947 novel exposed misogyny in post-World War II American society, making it far ahead of its time.
Hughes "belongs in the crime-writing pantheon with male icons like Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler...Hughes takes the gender cliches of noir and turns them on their head." -John Powers, NPR
