Queer Noir (forthcoming 2018)

The objective of this book is to recognize the literary corpus of queer hardboiled novels in Spain and Latin America, which continues to be marginalized and ignored. Queer Noir explores the manner in which homosexuality is seen across countries and inside a specific country. The methodology for this project is to study the fusion of hardboiled with other genres, analyze the images of queer detectives, murderers, and victims in relation to major contemporary problems in the Hispanic world and explore how it affects the Hispanic homosexual and the global Latin gay population.
