The Hunter and Other Stories

By Dashiell Hammett
Narrated by Stephen Bowlby, Brian Holsopple & Donna Postel / 10 hours 1 minute

Dashiell Hammett is best known as both pioneer and master of American hard-boiled detective fiction, but these dozen and a half stories both affirm that reputation and present him in a different light. Along with the full-length screen treatments On the Make (which became the movie Mr. Dynamite, 1935) and The Kiss-Off (the basis for City Streets, starring Sylvia Sydney and Gary Cooper, 1931), this collection includes never before and rarely published stories that explore failed romance, courage in the face of uncertainty, hypocrisy, and crass opportunism.

Collected and edited by Hammett’s granddaughter, Julie Rivett, and noted Hammett scholar and biographer Richard Layman, The Hunter and Other Stories is a trove of priceless literary gems from an American master storyteller.

Donna Postel reads the introduction, commentaries, and afterword; Ray Chase reads the sections “Crime” and “Screen Stories” and the appendix; Brian Holsopple reads the section “Men”; and Stephen Bowlby reads the section “Men and Women.”
