Item description for Dr. Poggioli: Criminologist (Lost Classics) by T.S. Stribling...


Clues of the Caribbees (1929), a collection of detective stories about Dr. Henry Poggioli by Thomas Sigismund Stribling (1881-1965), was recognized by Ellery Queen as one of the most innovative volumes of sleuthing ever published, and is one of the books in Queen's Quorum. To the general public, however, T.S. Stribling was known as one of the leaders in the school of Southern Literary Realism, especially in his discussion of the plight of African-Americans in the South. His 1932 novel, The Store, won the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction.

Between 1929 and 1935, Stribling published a second series of eight Poggioli cases, which are collected in book form for the first time in Dr. Poggioli: Criminologist. Although they sometimes use stereotyped language for the Black characters (indeed for many of the characters), several of the stories, especially the extraordinary "Bullets," present a penetrating view of race relations during the 1930's.

Dr. Poggioli: Criminologist is the 14th in the Crippen & Landru "Lost Classics" series. The collection is edited by Arthur Vidro and includes a complete checklist of Poggioli stories. The cover illustration is by Native American artist Barbara Mitchell, and the Lost Classics design is by Deborah Miller.
