M.P. NOLAN'S
NEW BOOK
(ANTHEM PRESS, MARCH 2024)

This volume argues that we must examine the boundaries in fiction and non-fiction crime writing with an awareness of and turn toward the unseen structures and spatial uncertainties that so often lead to and reflect collective fears and anxieties. The chapters within utilize theories of cultural memory and/or deep mapping to facilitate this process.
