Re: RARA-AVIS: Bill Gray

A word on A. W. (Bill) Gray: he should be added to the list of ex-con writers. He was in federal prison, I believe, and he has some great stories about writing his first book (sneaking into an office with an old Underwood typewriter on which the ribbon spool wouldn't turn and having another con stand beside the desk and turn the spool by hand, for one thing). The Bino books (the first one is BINO) aren't exactly hardboiled but might be of interest to some readers on this list.
