RARA-AVIS: Cain and his girl muse

MT (matrxtech@sprintmail.com)
Mon, 05 Apr 1999 23:42:37 -0800 John Lau speculates that a bad girl corrupted Cain's mind and inspired
his writing. I wonder what experiences David Goodis had with big
luscious girls in tandem with thin frail ones; as someone pointed out
the other day, it's a recurrent theme -- notably, in _Cassidy's Girl_
which I felt compelled to reread in order to recover from how bad _The
Burglar_ was. CG remains a great yarn, despite the crude
implausibilities and the liberally applied corn. This one rocks.
