Description

"Isn't Justice Always Unfair?" explores the uncommonly long and uncommonly rich relationship between the fictional detective and his or her South. It covers the satires and parodies of Mark Twain, the stories of Melville Davisson Post and Irvin S. Cobb, and includes the many writers who are using the detective story to compose inquiries into the character of life in the South today. At the center of the book lies an analysis of William Faulkner's exploitation of the genre."
