Icon3 film noir


I was wondering whether there was such a thing as a book noir like
a film noir or a book interpretation made onto as a film noir

any ideas?

Oh yeah, there are lots of noir novels. Most detective stories have some noir elements in them, it's part of the genre. A lot of modern urban fantasy draws from that well; The Dresden Files spring to mind as an example.

hey that is great. I never would have thought of The Dresden Files.

I am trying to get to he bottom what a noir element is about.
I know it is a genre but it is not quite clear why or how.
are you familiar with it?
is trying to enphasise the word classic.?
in other to create classicism fairly early.
a bit like antique trying to imitated.
does that make sense?
by giving a black and white ambiance it gives the idea that it is older then it is
unless
there is another meaning for a noir element.
