Read full description of the books È già buio, dolcezza:

William Collins è bello, educato, gentile. Ma può facilmente diventare pericoloso, quando perde la calma e lo sguardo si annebbia, e le furie si impossessano della sua vita, delle sue azioni. Ex pugile con un "incidente" mortale alle spalle, Collins è di nuovo a piede libero, e si è unito a un affabile truffatore e a una donna provocante e senza scrupoli. Insieme, progettano un "colpo", un rapimento, un omicidio, e molto, molto di più.
Pubblicato originariamente nel 1955, È già buio, dolcezza è una presentazione ideale del mondo oscuro di Jim Thompson. Gli istinti brutali, la dittatura feroce di un destino insormontabile, i rapporti umani dominati dai cliché e dall'incomprensione reciproca, l'ossessione del denaro come unica sorgente di felicità: tutto questo è mediato e sublimato da una dolorosa tenerezza nella descrizione del male di vivere, da un'accusa sempre appassionata di quel modello imperfetto di esistenza comune che si definisce società umana.
Con questo romanzo - dopo aver acquistato in esclusiva l'opera omnia - la Fanucci Editore ha inaugurato la "Collezione Thompson", una collana dedicata a un maestro indiscusso del noir, così definito in un volume antologico per la prestigiosa Library of America.

James Myers Thompson was a United States writer of novels, short stories and screenplays, largely in the hardboiled style of crime fiction.

Thompson wrote more than thirty novels, the majority of which were original paperback publications by pulp fiction houses, from the late-1940s through mid-1950s. Despite some positive critical notice, notably by Anthony Boucher in the New York Times, he was little-recognized in his lifetime. Only after death did Thompson's literary stature grow, when in the late 1980s, several novels were re-published in the Black Lizard series of re-discovered crime fiction.

Thompson's writing culminated in a few of his best-regarded works: The Killer Inside Me, Savage Night, A Hell of a Woman and Pop. 1280. In these works, Thompson turned the derided pulp genre into literature and art, featuring unreliable narrators, odd structure, and surrealism.

The writer R.V. Cassills has suggested that of all pulp fiction, Thompson's was the rawest and most harrowing; that neither Dashiell Hammett nor Raymond Chandler nor even Horace McCoy, author of the bleak They Shoot Horses, Don't They?, ever "wrote a book within miles of Thompson". [1] Similarly, in the introduction to Now and on Earth, Stephen King says he most admires Thompson's work because "The guy was over the top. The guy was absolutely over the top. Big Jim didn't know the meaning of the word stop. There are three brave lets inherent in the forgoing: he let himself see everything, he let himself write it down, then he let himself publish it."

Thompson admired Fyodor Dostoevsky and was nicknamed "Dimestore Dostoevsky" by writer Geoffrey O'Brien. Film director Stephen Frears, who directed an adaptation of Thompson's The Grifters as 1990's The Grifters, also identified elements of Greek tragedy in his themes.
