For Freeling, the mystery genre embraces multitudinous forms and an astounding variety of practitioners, from great literary stylists to base hacks. As might be expected, he is never at a loss for words nor diffident in his judgments about either. In his own fiction, Freeling has defied every convention, to the delight of audiences worldwide. An original, unexpected, unfailingly rewarding writer, he here gives further delight with these personal, opinionated, thoroughly provocative essays on his predecessors in mysterious excellence. This is a collection for anyone interested in the literature of crime, and indeed in literature tout court - for, as Freeling says, "The nature of crime is also the nature of art."

3 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 77 libraries worldwide
"Nicholas Freeling has spent much of his adult life in Europe, achieving success first as a chef and later as a celebrated novelist. The Kitchen Book was the author's picture of his grand hotel years, which were essential to his life. The Village Book covers more than one writer's life, however; it also examines the history of one peculiar part of Europe. France meets Germany in the pivotal town of Strasbourg; Grandfontaine, the village outside it, is where Nicolas Freeling has made his home for many years. Here the creator of the ever-popular detectives Van der Valk and Castang explores his family's past while unearthing the history of his village and its context in the region, and in the new Europe being created today."--Jacket
