The short story collection Berkeley Noir shows a dark side to the college town with tales of deceit and murder. In this interview, co-editors Jerry Thompson and Owen Hill talk about the book and why they love the noir genre.

"It's a party. It's a ride. It's an up. It's a down. I mean you're feeling it. That, for me, is Berkeley Noir."
