« back to classes page
The mystery or detective story is one of the most popular, rapidly changing (and demeaned) of all literary genres. Its modern origin is Edgar Allan Poe’s "Murders in the Rue Morgue," published in 1844. Thousands of writers have followed Poe into the realm of short fiction and have developed novels crime fans love to read. Whether your favorites are detection, suspense, noir or cozy, there are plenty of short stories that will entertain you. Participants will explore the history and current direction of short suspense stories as well as read and discuss three of the best examples of the genre: “The Homesick Buick” by John D. MacDonald; “The Stolen White Elephant” by Mark Twain; and “The Victim” by P.D. James.
