Read full description of the books:

Este entramado de codicia y amor perverso da cuerpo a la más fascinante novela de corrupción de Jim Thompson. Roy Dillon, hijo bastardo de una prostituta y timador de poca monta, se encuentra dividido entre el amor que siente por su madre, que reaparece tratando de evadir a la justicia tras una prolongada ausencia, y su amante Lilly, dispuesta a todo con tal de alejar al joven de la influencia de su autoritaria madre, con quien entabla una encarnizada competencia por ganarse la atención de Roy. Jim Thompson (1906-1977) desempeñó diversos oficios antes de dedicarse al periodismo y a la literatura. Las experiencias que acumuló trabajando como camarero, camionero, experto en explosivos, vigilante y vendedor ambulante se reflejan en todas sus novelas. Pese a que gran parte de su obra se publicó en revistas y ediciones baratas, sus novelas entrañan gran valor literario, documental y biográfico, pues reflejan, con su desfachatez característica, la crueldad de la Gran Depresión y las experiencias que marcaron su vida. Publicó su primera novela, Aquí y ahora (Ediciones de Bolsillo, 2003), en 1942 pero se consagró como escritor diez años después con El asesino dentro de mí. Además de veintinueve novelas, Thompson escribió dos guiones cinematográficos: Atraco perfecto y Senderos de gloria.

James Myers Thompson was a United States writer of novels, short stories and screenplays, largely in the hardboiled style of crime fiction.

Thompson wrote more than thirty novels, the majority of which were original paperback publications by pulp fiction houses, from the late-1940s through mid-1950s. Despite some positive critical notice, notably by Anthony Boucher in the New York Times, he was little-recognized in his lifetime. Only after death did Thompson's literary stature grow, when in the late 1980s, several novels were re-published in the Black Lizard series of re-discovered crime fiction.

Thompson's writing culminated in a few of his best-regarded works: The Killer Inside Me, Savage Night, A Hell of a Woman and Pop. 1280. In these works, Thompson turned the derided pulp genre into literature and art, featuring unreliable narrators, odd structure, and surrealism.

The writer R.V. Cassills has suggested that of all pulp fiction, Thompson's was the rawest and most harrowing; that neither Dashiell Hammett nor Raymond Chandler nor even Horace McCoy, author of the bleak They Shoot Horses, Don't They?, ever "wrote a book within miles of Thompson". [1] Similarly, in the introduction to Now and on Earth, Stephen King says he most admires Thompson's work because "The guy was over the top. The guy was absolutely over the top. Big Jim didn't know the meaning of the word stop. There are three brave lets inherent in the forgoing: he let himself see everything, he let himself write it down, then he let himself publish it."

Thompson admired Fyodor Dostoevsky and was nicknamed "Dimestore Dostoevsky" by writer Geoffrey O'Brien. Film director Stephen Frears, who directed an adaptation of Thompson's The Grifters as 1990's The Grifters, also identified elements of Greek tragedy in his themes.
