A Man Named Cain

I don't read novels anymore -- I reserve my reading time for biographies and histories; but back when I did read novels, one author whose work I loved was James M. Cain. You might not recognize his name, but you certainly recognize his works: "Double Indemnity," "The Postman Always Rings Twice" and the novel that became my favorite movie of all time "Mildred Pierce."

On 12 September 1943, the Los Angeles Times ran an article interviewing Cain and writer Raymond Chandler (probably my second favorite novelist) who were both working on a film adaptation of Cain's "Double Indemnity" -- a fantastic movie, if you've never seen it.
