Pequena biografia
Stanley Ellin grew up in Brooklyn, went to school and college there, and lived there for most of his life. During the late 1930s, he eked out a living working at a number of jobs, including junior college teacher, magazine salesman, and steelworker. Although he began writing during these years, he was unable to sell his stories and eventually abandoned his literary efforts. In 1937, he married Jeanne Michael, an editor, and they had one child. After a stint in the Army during World War II, Ellin decided to return to writing full-time. He first sold a story to Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine in 1948 -- his most famous work, now a classic, "The Specialty of the House," won the magazine's best fiction award that year. Also in 1948, Simon & Schuster published his first novel, "Dreadful Summit," launching a successful career in which he published another dozen novels and four collections of short stories. Ellin won three Edgar Awards from the Mystery Writers of America. The French translation of his Mirror, Mirror on the Wall (1972) received the 1975 Le Grand Prix de Litterature Policiere. In 1981, he was named Grand Master, the highest honor from the Mystery Writers of America.

I had high hopes for this Edgar Award winner, but I found it rather run-of-the-mill and reminiscent of Raymond Chandler, but less skillfully done. The protagonist, Murphy Kirk, is a New York City private detective, but not the usual broke PI. He owns a large agency and has a large staff and obviously lots of money at his disposal. Unfortunately, I thought he exhibited little personality while chasing down clues and women.

Sometimes I attempt to make myself step outside my usual fare and try a genre that I know will only appeal to me if the book is exceptionally written. By picking an Edgar winner, I thought it was increasing my chances, but the truth is detective fiction just isn’t my forte and I wished I had spent the afternoon with the kind of fiction I cannot get enough of.

Atípica novel·la negra americana. Acció trepidant. El protagonista, quan comença la novel·la, és un noi, i quan la novel·la acaba, 24 hores després, és un home. És el que passa quan la vida va massa de pressa.

I'm re-reading this book after at least 40 years. In the interim, my only real exposure to Stanley Ellin has been through his classic story "The Specialty of the House" -- which received a nice dramatization in Vincent Price's BBC Radio Series "The Price of Fear". Amazingly, that was his first published story.

The Blessington Method is a mixed bag at best. The title story is clever--perhaps too clever, but has a nice, ironic ending. It is also extremely dated, already, given the 21st century's changing demographics and explosion of older people in our society. "Robert" is the most disturbing story in the book as a teacher two years away from retirement faces off against a sixth grader. Other stories are enjoyable, such as The 9 to 5 Man. Some are just silly, such as one about a flea circus. Ellin's writing style and subject matter takes us back to a mid-century world that seems far more antique than it actually is.… (mais)
