Re: RARA-AVIS: Early Westlake

Tue, 12 Jan 1999 19:59:26 -0500 I have to defend Westlake's Dortmunder series. These novels are comic
gems. It's hard to believe how easily the man moves between the
ultrahardboiled and the pure comic, a sign of his versatility and
talent. Anyway, I have been a sucker for Dortmunder since I discovered
the hilarious _The Hot Rock_, where a train is driven through a loony
bin and the bad guys land on a helicopter on the roof of a police
station in NYC. Great stuff!
