Abstract:

This book studies the exchange between New York's tabloid press and other narrative frames, including Hollywood crime film, museum exhibits, and hard-boiled fiction. Using early issues of the New York Daily News, the New York Daily Mirror, and the Evening Graphic, the authors trace crime stories from the late 1920s through the 1940s across often-contentious borders between different narrative sites. The papers' historically denigrated social status prompts the authors to study what they call "narrative mobility," the process by which a story, in transiting from one medium, genre, or mode to another, reveals the underlying class boundaries that circumscribe that movement.
