The Grifters

The Grifters - Jim Thompson In revisiting "The Grifters," I find it isn't nearly as depressing as I remembered, or as much as I felt the 1990 film to be. The small novel is still classic noir, however, ending on an unexpected twist and packed with characters, large and small, who all seem to be working angles on one another. Sharp and quick, this is a great Jim Thompson read.
