Noircon 2008: The Official Podcast Day 2: George Lippard and Philly Noir Philadelphia noir is the focus of two panels at Noircon 2008. The first panel presents the historical moment, cultural milieu and writings of the 19th century Philly writer George Lippard. Ed Petit and Robert Polito make a compelling case to consider Lippard an important proto-noir author, an author whose writings look back towards 1798's gothic novel WIELAND and forward towards 20th century hardboiled. The second panel addresses the issue of Philly noir through a discussion among noir and crime writers currently living and working in Philadelphia. Clute and Edwards talk more with Philly authors William Lashner and Jon McGoran (D.H. Dublin) about what is Philadelphia noir and how does Philadelphia figure as one of the great American noir cities.

  • Sorry if this appears twice; my computer appears to be eating comments. Good job, guys. As a passive spectator to the nonsense about The Next Great City and a victim of The Next Great Era in Philadelphia journalism, I cheered Jon McGoran’s comments. Perhaps noir’s refusal to buy into this sort of cheap boosterism is a sign that subversive vitality remains in the genre’s old bones. =================== Detectives Beyond Borders \"Because Murder Is More Fun Away From Home\" http://detectivesbeyondborders.blogspot.com/
