The ‘Softboiled’ Heroine

14 November, 2019, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Fed up with women being typecast as either evil femmes fatales or housetrained ingenues in traditional crime fiction? If so, come along to Margate Bookshop to learn more about Elizabeth Sanxay Holding’s The Blank Wall, a pioneering text in the tradition of domestic noir. Learn and discuss how this 1947 novel, recently republished, changed the role of women in traditional crime fiction.
