Cain: the biography of James M. Cain
“I never knew a writer who regarded [writing] as anything but a refined form of crucifixion.”—James M. Cain
Although Cain was formerly dismissed as merely a hardboiled writer, his finest works—The Postman Always Rings Twice, Mildred Pierce, and Double Indemnity—are now considered enduring classics of American literature.
In this book Roy Hoopes gives as full a picture of the man and his life as will ever be written. The work was awarded an “Edgar” by the Mystery Writers of America.

Review: Cain: The Biography of James M. CainUser Review - Goodreads
My family lived next door to James M Cain in University Park (Hyattsville) during the 60's and 70's. I remember his stories from his newspaper and Hollywood years well. This book is an extremely well researched and written book about one of America's lesser known great novelists.
