Text Quotes
I’m the Jerry Lewis of crime fiction  (Crime Fiction Quotes) Crime fiction is a way of satisfying that nosy need to know  (Crime Fiction Quotes) Crime fiction is the new rock n’ roll  (Crime Fiction Quotes) I read all the Agatha Christies when I was younger and like Sherlock Holmes. Crime fiction has always fascinated me, but I’ll read anything anyone gives me.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) I get very tired of violence in crime fiction. Maybe it is what life is like, but I don’t want to do it in my books.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) And there are rules for crime fiction. Or if not rules, at least expectations and you have to give the audience what it wants.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) I’m sold as a literary writer in Holland; I’m sold as crime fiction in England. I think of it as just literature.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) I usually get up not before 9. I have a huge library - I’m a big fan of Scandinavian crime fiction - so I’ll usually take a book and go off to one of my favorite bistros for a cappuccino or espresso or maybe I’ll have some lovely smoked salmon for breakfast.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) I just really like the verve and muscle of good crime fiction, the narrative punch of it. The underlying principle of good crime fiction is an insistence on a kind of root democracy. I’ve always responded to that notion.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) History buffs expect historical background in historical fiction. Mystery readers expect forensics and police procedure in crime fiction. Westerns - gasp - describe the West. Techno-thriller readers expect to learn something about technology from their fiction.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) When I set out to write crime fiction, I didn’t think to myself, ‘I’m going to model myself on Agatha Christie’ or ‘I am going to be a crime writer in the Christie tradition’.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) The danger that may really threaten (crime fiction) is that soon there will be more writers than readers.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) There is a very conservative element of crime writers that don’t recognise what I do is crime fiction.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) Arabs don’t do crime fiction. I read crime fiction and I read Arabic literature, and I wish this was a novel I could have read in Arabic.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) Anyone who says, ‘Books don’t change anything,’ or - more commonly - that crime fiction is the wrong genre for promoting social change - should take a closer look.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) I think crime fiction is a great way to talk about social issues, whether ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ or ‘The Lovely Bones;’ violence is a way to open up that information you want to get out to the reader.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) In Cold Blood’ is not a thriller at all, really. It is, however, the first work of its kind: a true crime book that reads like fiction.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) Reading my way all the way through Sherlock Holmes gave me a lifelong love for crime and detective fiction.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) The mainstream has lost its way. Crime fiction is an objective, realistic genre because it’s about the real world, real bodies really being killed by somebody. And this involves the investigator in trying to understand the society that the person lived in.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) Crime fiction confirms our belief, despite some evidence to the contrary, that we live in a rational, comprehensible, and moral universe.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) Crime fiction, especially noir and hardboiled, is the literature of the proletariat  (Crime Fiction Quotes) There are a number of writers who believe it is their duty to throw as many curve balls at the reader as possible. To twist and twist again. These are the Chubby Checkers of crime fiction and, while I admire the craft, I think that it can actually work against genuine suspense.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) Ian Rankin’s Rebus is the king of modern British crime fiction. He is dour, determined, and constantly falls foul of his seniors. For all this, we root for him. He is eminently loveable, a quixotic hero moving through the darker half of a Jekyll and Hyde Edinburgh.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) I’m snobby about books that aren’t crime fiction: if I start reading a literary novel and there’s no mystery emerging in the first few pages, I’m like, ‘Gah, this obviously isn’t a proper book. Why would I want to carry on reading it?’  (Crime Fiction Quotes) There is sometimes a feeling in crime fiction that good writing gets in the way of story. I have never felt that way. All you have is language. Why write beneath yourself? It’s an act of respect for the reader as much as yourself.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) In the crime fiction section, you may just find a novel that talks about the place where you’re from and speaks to you about your life - or the life yours could have become if a little misfortune had come your way.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) Pushing the boundaries of polite society does not just fall under the purview of crime fiction authors.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) My liking for Scandinavian crime fiction led me into exploring literary writers from the same countries.  (Crime Fiction Quotes) With crime fiction, you have to write a half-dozen before they catch on  (Crime Fiction Quotes) One of the surprising things I hadn’t expected when I decided to write crime fiction is how much you are expected to be out in front of the public. Some writers aren’t comfortable with that. I don’t have a problem with that.  (Crime Fiction Quotes)
