Learn Life's Hard Lessons from Film Noir

&break;&break;If you want to know the meaning of life, don't study Shakespeare, don't peruse Plato. Everything you need to know in life you can learn from film noir. And everything you can learn from film noir, you can find in "It's a Bitter Little World."

&break;&break;Author Charles Pappas scavenged sixty years of film noir - from "The Maltese Falcon" to "Sin City" - to find the answers to everything that ever perplexed men and vexed women.

&break;&break;Arranged by decade, the scalding quotes and cigarette-burn dialogue reflect an America morphing from Sinatra and fedoras to P. Diddy and Botox. The language is a swig of Rum-and-Coke at breakfast. It's the last words at a funeral nobody came to. It's a saxophone on a rainy night when you can't sleep. It's all the loneliness and despair and romance and courage in your life rolled up into one neat package.
