A Vintage Crime/Black Lizard Special Edition of The Postman Always Rings Twice by James M. Cain. Featuring an introduction by James Ellroy.

When Frank, an amoral young drifter, gets thrown off a hay truck in the California desert, he ends up at a diner run by Cora and her inconvenient husband, Nick. This chance meeting puts them all on a sure path to perdition. First published in 1934 and banned in Boston for its explosive mixture of violence and eroticism, The Postman Always Rings Twice is a classic of the roman noir. It established James M. Cain as a major novelist with an unsparing vision of America's bleak underside and was acknowledged by Albert Camus as the model for The Stranger.

Series Overview: Vintage Crime/Black Lizard Anniversary Editions are a special collection of classic and modern classic noir titles. Featuring introductions by James Ellroy.
