Cigarettes and neon nightclub signs illuminating rain-slicked city streets. Desperate characters in suits, ties and fedoras; fatal femmes and alleycat shadows, phone booths and gunshots in the night. We know them as the calling cards of Film Noir, but over at Red Bank oRBit we’ve found out that Noir happens in the most unexpected places even in the broad daylight of a Sunday afternoon.
Today’s edition of our satellite site has an interview with award winning mystery novelist, recovering newspaperman and RBC grad Wallace Stroby, on films noir, novels and the no-man’s-land between. The author of such Shore-based suspensers as Heartbreak Lounge and The Barbed Wire Kiss visits Asbury Park’s Showroom this Sunday, to present a screening of Stanley Kubrick‘s classic caper The Killing and to talk Noir with oRBit editor Tom Chesek.
We’ve got the lowdown on this hardboiled entry in the BookFLX series, along with a pre-screening conversation with Stroby, ONLY in Red Bank oRBit!
