Re: RARA-AVIS: Chandler- Library of America

Date: 18 Jul 2000

Am I the only one who doesn't think its as much fun to read Chandler and Hammett in the very august packaging of the LOA? Same is true for the works included in the Polito-edited noir volumes. Much as I appreciate their inclusion in the LOA as validation of these works as literature worthy of the best the U.S. has to offer, I think there's an aesthetic disconnect in reading these works in that format.

Just my $0.02.
