RARA-AVIS: Re: RARA-AVIS The death of the hardboiled

From: Douglas Greene ( dgreene@odu.edu)

Whatever Bill Pronzini may be, he's certainly not a "marginal" author. But setting that aside, Bill's point is that the genuine hardboiled story was closely connected with a time and place, and those are gone.

He may be wrong: I rather think he _is_ wrong--but please don't call him

Incidentally, NIGHT FREIGHT is a sp;endid cvollectionm and at about $5.50 a bargain.
