RARA-AVIS: Agent to Rara-Avis

Mon, 29 Mar 1999 17:02:07 EST Some time ago, we (leader Bill and I?) tried to get a discussion going about
the business of publishing and its attitude toward the hard-boiled. Perhaps,
with self-identified agent aboard--David Hale Smith--he could tell us his
inside perspective. Do you see a lot of hard-boiled come across your desk?
Are editors getting more interested in it or no? Did you market "God is a
Bullet" to Knopf as a hard-boiled crime novel or as something other than or
"beyond" that?
