My family and friends don't share my enthusiasm for this area of
fiction. I just returned from NYC and a breezethrough of The Strand
Bookstore. I picked up a Chester Himes autobiography (haven't unpacked
so I can't share the title). I thought I owned a copy of his collected
works so I passed up several nice copies of a few of his novels. I'm
annoyed that upon checking my book, I don't have the collected works but
only a nice collection of his shorts. It's just another good reason to
return to NYC. Whatta town! Had I more time at the Strand I wanted to
see if they carred any Iceberg Slim.
