Leonard Cassuto's cultural history links the
testosterone-saturated heroes of American crime stories to the
sensitive women of the nineteenth-century sentimental novel. From
classics like The Big Sleep and The Talented Mr.
Ripley to neglected paperback gems, Cassuto chronicles the
dialogue--centered on the power of sympathy--between these popular
genres and the sweeping social changes of the twentieth century,
ending with a surprising connection between today's serial killers
and the domestic fictions of long ago.
