"New Haven may be best known for Yale University, but its criminal dimensions run as deep as anywhere else on the Eastern Seaboard. Contributors include Stephen L. Carter, Chris Knopf, Karen E. Olson, and Jessica Speart."
--Publishers Weekly; included in Fall 2017 Adult Announcements, Mysteries and Thrillers

"The anthology brings together writers who take varied approaches to the idea of noir in the Elm City. Some stories are historical, some are contemporary. All the classic New Haven landmarks are there, including plenty of Yale. But there's also the more obscure--and maybe more interesting--parts of the city where the tourists don't typically go: Long Wharf, Lighthouse Point Park, Dixwell Avenue, the Food Terminal Plaza, and so on. The full sweep of New Haven's character is on display in the anthology."
--Connecticut Magazine

"A star-studded cast of contributors curated by Shapiro-Silverberg Professor of Creative Writing Amy Bloom fill the pages of New Haven Noir, featuring original stories from Michael Cunningham, Stephen Carter, Roxana Robinson, Assistant Professor of English Hirsh Sawhney and many others."
--Wesleyan University Newsletter

"A strong and highly enjoyable collection of diverse noir stories that truly give the reader a vibe for the City of New Haven. Get it for yourself or for the Yalie in your life."
