Description
The British Library
A compelling collection of hidden gems of global crime writing, republished from the superlative collection of the British Library. Foreign Bodies: a baffling collection of 15 rarely published short stories, some in English translation for the first time and all rarely published in Britain. Reflecting the widespread popularity of mystery writing in the 20th century. A globe-trotting mix takes in tales from Denmark, Mexico, Russia, France, Germany, Japan and more. Preceding the modern vogue for Scandi noir by over 100 years, includes ‘The Swedish Match’ by Anton Chekhov and Palle Rosenkranz’s ‘A Sensible Course of Action’, from 1909. Plus ‘The Return of Lord Kingwood’ by Ivans, ‘The Spider’ by Koga Saburo, ‘Murder a la Carte’ by Jean-Toussaint Samat, and ‘The Puzzle of the Broken Watch’ by Maria Elvira Bermudez.
