Beirut Noir

Paperback
by Humaydan, Iman (ed.)
On the heels of 'Tel Aviv Noir' and 'Tehran Noir', the Akashic Noir series moves deeper into the Middle East. From the introduction by Humaydan: "Beirut is a city of contradiction and paradox. It is an urban and rural city, one of violence and forgiveness, memory and forgetfulness. Beirut is a city of war and peace. This short story collection is a part of a vibrant, living recovery of Beirut. 'Beiru...

Tehran Noir

Paperback
by Abdoh, Salar (ed.)
Tehran is a juxtaposition of ugliness and beauty that breaks the heart. A place where not one but two inept dynasties came to miserable ends, and where, arguably, the third most important revolution in history (after the French and the Russian) was started.

Stockholm Noir

Paperback
by Larson, Nathan (ed.)
'Stockholm Noir' joins 'Copenhagen Noir' and 'Helsinki Noir' in representing the Akashic Noir Series in Scandinavia. The excitement around Scandinavian crime fiction coming in the wake of 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' has been largely centered on Sweden - and for good reason, as revealed here. The chill of the country's northern climate combines with Sweden's rich cultural traditions (and contrad...

Marseille Noir

Paperback
by Fabre, Cedric (ed.)
Marseille provides magnificent material for writing. For a long time, when it still had its eye on the sea, it was in fact a veritable 'open city' for writers on shore leave. It welcomed the greatest globe-trotting writers in transit, advocates of a vagabond literature that turned Marseille into one of the capitals of 'world fiction,' well before the English supposedly coined the concept. This new addition ...

Montreal Noir

Paperback
by McFetridge, John (ed.)
Montreal is noir, the birthplace of Leonard Cohen, Saul Bellow, Michel Tremblay, Mordecai Richler, and Oscar Peterson. It's unsettling, it's subversive, it's palpable, but it's never obvious. Montreal's long history is dominated by cultures coming together, almost. And coming apart, almost. And continuing, always. Here, French and English writers explore the underside of the Sin City of the north.

Buenos Aires Noir

Paperback
by Mallo, Ernesto (ed.)
Buenos Aires is a city of contrasts and contradictions, always on the edge of chaos, where multimillionaires and the destitute anxiously coexist in close quarters. Here, Argentina's top writers explore a city influenced as much by criminality and smuggling as Borges and the tango.

Prague Noir

Paperback
by Mandys, Pavel (ed.)
While Prague might today be one of the world's top tourist destinations, and a cosmopolitan capital of European culture, it remains an open-air monument to a history of violence. Here, Prague's top writers explore the hidden corners of the 'City of a Hundred Spires,' pulling back the curtain to reveal gloom and despair.

Baghdad Noir

Paperback
by Shimon, Samuel (ed.)
From 'I Killed Her Because I Loved Her' by Muhsin al-Ramli: "The neighbourhood, timeless with its narrow, smelly lanes, seemed to have been forgotten since it came into being with the foundation of Baghdad in Abbasid times. The streets were pocked with potholes, noisy with the clamour of children playing and the clatter of peddlers' carts. On the pavement there were piles of putrid, smoldering garbage: ...

Tel Aviv Noir

Paperback
by Keret, Etgar (ed.)
Tel Aviv is in many ways the cultural capital of Israel, and it is home to many of the country's best writers. This unparalleled collection gives insight into the daily life of Israelis, albeit through a noir lens. In spite of its outwardly warm and polite exterior, Tel Aviv has quite a bit to hide - just one of the fringe benefits of a country that institutes mandatory military service.

Singapore Noir

Paperback
by Tan, Cheryl Lu-Lien (ed.)
Say 'Singapore' to anyone and you'll likely hear one of a few words: Caning. Fines. Chewing gum. For much of the West, the narrative of Singapore has been marked largely by its government's strict laws and unwavering enforcement of them. Yet there are many quirky and dark complexities of Singapore that rarely seem to make it past its borders.
