  6. Gaslighters, Grifters and Gangsters: Psycho-thrillers of the 40s and 50s
    Course start date:  Thu 27 Jun 2024

    Location on this date:  Keeley Street

    Tutors:  William Brady
    Join us to explore the rise of a dark, psychologically complex strain of Crime Fiction in the 1940s and 50s. Often termed the ‘psycho-thriller’, these novels put the criminal mind centre-stage, delving into murkier recesses of the human psyche than had previously been entertained. Focusing on two key examples of the genre, Patrick Hamilton’s Hangover Square and Patricia Highsmith’s Strangers on a Train, we will analyse and contextualise the psycho-thriller as it evolved in Britain and America.
