RARA-AVIS: Re: Hardboiled Lit is Dead...

I actually like Pronzini's writing. But if he really thinks hard-boiled is dead, maybe someone should tell him to shut up and read his own books. A WASTELAND OF STRANGERS might be a good place to start. What complete bollocks.

Really, this is the equivalent of Springsteen pausing in mid-concert, sweat dripping off him, clutching his guitar, to announce that rock'n'roll is dead, before counting off and crashing back into ROSALITA.
