Tue, 18 May 1999 17:43:32 EDT A colleague and I are trying to develop a college honors course based upon
hard boiled fiction, film noir, and, we hope, some forms of American painting
and music.
We think we have the first two areas covered, but we need some guidance
concerning art and music. Are there any particular artists whose work seems
to fit in with the hard boiled mode? Hopper comes to my mind, but I've not
really looked into his works thoroughly. I'm guessing some forms of jazz also
fit in. Doesn't Elroy do a lot with it?

Anyway, I am a neophyte in these matters so I turn to this list.

Help, I cry.
