James M. Cain and Mildred Pierce

A year or two ago I discovered HBO's Mildred Pierce and through that I came to discover the author of the original book, James M. Cain.

Having already seen and loved the mini series -which is one of the truest book-to-film adaptations of that I've ever seen- I quickly fell under the author's spell.

These are the 3 James M. Cain novels I've gone through so far: Mildred Pierce (1941), Serenade (1937) and Double Indemnity (1943). I've enjoyed all three and I plan to keep reading more.

Mildred Pierce remains my favourite so I couldn't resist adding some pictures of the super-talented Kate Winslet from the mini series in
glorious 1930s-1940s attire.

You can find some Mildred Pierce links that I enjoyed here, here and here.
