good to see you back. did you read faulkner's "the bear"?
whoops! i guess thats not hardboiled so its not discussable
here. _as i lay dying_ is my favorite faulkner. i searched
the archives after i read cormac mccarthy's _blood meridian_
and noticed that you had commented on him. i guess i'm going
to read _child of god_ next. incest, rape, and murder. oh
boy! my favorites! i think i'll avoid that trilogy work. it
sounded like it got a bit sentimental and "lonesome dovish"
to me. i'll pass on that.
