Read full description of the books I Should Have Stayed Home: A Novel:I found this awesome old Penguin whilst location scouting for my upcoming film production, I honestly didn't mean to buy anything but ended up with half a dozen really cool titles to check off of my lists.
I've not read any McCoy before, I saw the movie of They Shoot Horses and felt like I had a good idea of what to expect but I didn't really expect to be comparing it to Day of the Locust, which I did and unfavourably so unfortunately. It's a good little book but not something you expect to find in the green crime penguin. There's not much in the way of crime going on here but what's there is a good quality piece of writing.
Read information about the authorHorace Stanley McCoy (1897–1955) was an American novelist whose gritty, hardboiled novels documented the hardships Americans faced during the Depression and post-war periods. McCoy grew up in Tennessee and Texas; after serving in the air force during World War I, he worked as a journalist, film actor, and screenplay writer, and is author of five novels including They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? (1935) and the noir classic Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye (1948). Though underappreciated in his own time, McCoy is now recognized as a peer of Dashiell Hammett and James Cain. He died in Beverly Hills, California, in 1955.
