Thoughts on The Thin Man

I’m thrilled to announce the publication of a great new book about The Thin Man movies, Thoughts on The Thin Man: Essays on the Delightful Detective Work of Nick and Nora CharlesThoughtsCover

I’m very excited to have my essay on the series’ musical scores included in this terrific anthology!

Danny Reid over at the fantastic blog outdid himself putting this whole project together. Here’s the description of the book: Thoughts On The Thin Man reflects on these famous films, looking back at Dashiell Hammett’s original inspiration, the genesis of the films, and the men and women who made them possible. This collection of essays covers all six movies, including detailed plot breakdowns, quotes, trivia, discussion of motifs, looks at the many spin-offs of the series, a couple of nostalgic odes, and even drinking games, including a custom cocktail devoted to the duo. Would you expect any less?

You can buy the book in paperback and kindle here! All proceeds will be donated to the ASPCA, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Here are the other contributors. It’s been such fun to read all the essays!Thin Man Powell Loy teasing sequence

Thanks again to Danny for making this project possible! Cheers!
