Unsung international crime-fiction heroes
The post and its comments offer some intriguing names that I’ll add to my list. But first I want to begin a new list here. Who are your favorite unsung crime-fiction authors? (Extra credit for authors from countries other than the U.S.) I’ll start things off by nominating, as I always do, that “that undersung British master of irony,” my man Bill James.
Since I’m focusing on “international” authors, here’s a thought: Since so relatively few crime writers are translated into English, can any remain unsung, or are they devoured upon publication by those of us starved for crime from foreign climes?
