Ed Brubaker Quotes: When Youre Reading A Good Noir The

When You're Reading A Good Noir, The Shocks And Twists Have A Way Of Feeling Deja Vu-like, As If You Saw Them Coming, But Hoped The Characters Would Take A Left Turn ... Not Answer The Phone, Not Sleep With That Woman, Not Sell Drugs To Those Cops ... But Knew They Would. It Would Have Been Wrong If They Didn't, And The Real Surprise Can Be That You Care About Someone You Know Is In For Hell. You Relate To Them, Even When Their Hell Is So Much Bigger Than Your Own. But We're All Going To Die, And We All Make Mistakes.
The Best Noir Stories Make You Forget Plot Entirely By Giving You Characters That Feel So Well-realised You Can't Look Away As They Fall.
