Twice I Smiled and Twice I Frowned at The Postman


The Postman Always Rings Twice is a classic noir, mystery novel by James M. Cain. First published in 1934, the book became notorious for its graphic sexual and violent scenes, thus becoming banned in Boston. It’s a fast-paced and engaging read which became the bases of several movies and the inspiration for Albert Camus’s novel “The Stranger”. Read my review about the two things I liked and the two I didn’t quite enjoy about The Postman Always Rings Twice.
