I hate to open up the old definitions debate again, but
Motherless Brooklyn is hardly hardboiled. The central
character is a twitching mass of confusion and desperate need
- which is good, but hardly makes for hardboiled. Personally
I thought it was a trifle overlong. Decent novel though, one
of those ones that just had to be written.
