Someone mentioned the French new wave yesterday. They were a bunch of film critics who thought they could do a better job of making movies since it seemed everybody was awful. And in the crime/hardboiled field, wasn't Boucher (well, not so HB I guess) a big time critic who wrote pretty well himself? That's one interesting thing about the NYT Book Review: they get good writers to review books. They had Welty review Ross Macdonald.
