A newly discovered novel by crime writer James M. Cain, entitled “The Cocktail Waitress,” is finally being published this month --35 years after the author’s death. WNYC’s Sara Fishko offers a glimpse of Cain’s life and work – in this edition of Fishko Files.

 

"The Cocktail Waitress" will be published on September 18th. 

“For fans of the genre, The Cocktail Waitress is the Holy Grail. It’s like finding a lost manuscript by Hemingway or a lost score by Gershwin – that’s how big a deal this is,” said Charles Ardai, founder and editor of Hard Case Crime, a line of mystery novels published by Titan books, in a statement last year.
