Murder in the Millions: Erle Stanley Gardner Mickey Spillane Ian Fleming, de J. Kenneth Van Dover

 


Van Dover, J. KennethMurder in the Millions: Erle Stanley Gardner Mickey Spillane Ian Fleming. New York : Frederick Ungar Publishing Co., Inc, [1984] ISBN:0804429464 

Astonishingly enough, the three most popular fictional heroes of the twentieth century have been a lawyer, a private eye, and a spy. Perry Mason, Mike Hammer and James Bond became legends in an age that worshipped sophiscation, political action, and social liberalism. But popular heroes often say more about an age than its real-life movers and shakers. What gave these heroes so much appeal, and made their authors so much appeal, and made their authors so succesful? (...) Van Dover examine the distintive features of superselling fictions as he points up the reasons for its amazing success.
Tuit:
Per a l'autor, un advocat, un detectiu privat i un espia, —Mason,  Hammer i Bond—, van ser els herois del s. XX i es van convertir en supervendes. I ell, en aquest assaig, estudia quines van ser les raons.
