RARA-AVIS: Hammett biog

From: ejmd ( ejmd@cwcom.net)
Date: 31 Dec 1989

The Diane Johnson biog is probably the least good---according to Willliam F. Nolan, anyway, who published a long list of corrections to all the factual errors.

Most recent, and fullest, is Joan Mellen's Hellman and Hammett, which ought to be available via Amazon.

Get the Richard Layman if you see it (Shadowman) , and also look out for Nolan's A Life At The Edge. I also recall reading somewhere that Nolan was planning an updated biography (maybe in the preface to the Nightmare Town collection?) so that might me worth waiting for.
