RARA-AVIS: Reading lists

 I may out of place, but I have to say that one of the major problems that I've found with academic treatments of the mystery genre is that the author hasn't read enough--s/he's tried only the 2 or 3 best or most famous works by an author. Ross Macdonald, for example, reads quickly. Why not have the Ph.D. candidate read the entire oeuvre? His dissertation, or oral comps, will be much better.
