David Madden

David Madden is an author biographer of James M. Cain. Noir Historian.

"Cain displayed both a sort of social consciousness, inspired perhaps by the war, and a characteristic toughness when, in 1946, he set out to organize all the writers in America into an American Authors' Authority, a project that occupied him for several years. Cain approached the project with all of the great energy, sense of authority, arrogance, and drama of one of his characters."
