    A Hatchet Man Stands Up for ‘Mad Men’

    Dale Peck, a critic perhaps better known for not liking things, responds to Daniel Mendelsohn’s recent takedown of “Mad Men” in The New York Review of Books.

    “Mad Men” Returns - The New Yorker

    See on Scoop.it - Think Tank

    Un Deux Trois Quatre! Welcome back, “Mad Men.” Let us all perform a Zou Bisou Bisou dance in your honor. So many months have passed during the show’s hiatus—a year and five months—that the anticipation had begun to feel like being strapped to a leaden, if elegantly designed, roller coaster. There were months of he-said/he-said regarding Matt Weiner’s negotiations with AMC; there were Q. & A.s with Weiner himself, who may be a genius, but possesses a Franzen-esque ability to sound like a jerk, ev

    The Mad Men Account by Daniel Mendelsohn

    See on Scoop.it - Think Tank

    That a soap opera decked out in high-end clothes (and concepts) should have received so much acclaim and is taken so seriously reminds you that fads depend as much on the willingness of the public to believe as on the cleverness of the people who invent them; as with many fads that take the form of infatuations with certain moments in the past, the Mad Men craze tells us far more about today than it does about yesterday. But just what in the world of the show do we want to possess? The clothes a

    Le dévouement du suspect X, Keigo Higashino (2011)

    Cautious with crime novels, cautious especially with contemporary crime novels: fear to be faced with over-the-top crimes without writing style, without deep character studies… So many serial killers & so few literature sometimes… So cautious, cautious - despite my extended readings of Agatha Christie, Sherlock Holmes, Arsene Lupin as a kid…Despite my interest classic films noirs…

    But good surprises sometimes happen. Great & simple premise: single mother kills her ex-husband when he harasses her one night. The neighbor helps with the body. Classic noir situation. No suspense on the killer, no suspense on the context, hence a lot of room to explore the situation, to give space to the characters, to give time to twists. Two characters especially bring life to the plot & investigation: the neighbor as a math genius, and his old college pale, some physics genius. The exchanges between the two logical minds is wonderfully paced, the friendship & love & jealousy ingredients work well, the plot is cleverly designed with some dark tone. A great & entertaining clever read.
