That is something of an overstatement. I am writing my
Master's thesis on him, with plans to expand it into a full
dissertation. Practically forgotten until the early 70's,
Daly still hasn't gotten the recognition he deserves. He was
a hack without question, but he also invented an
icon--arguably the most original American icon there is, the
hard-boiled private eye. I think he needs a little more
critical attention, from a cultural studies point of view; he
couldn't write his way out of a paper bag, but he spoke to a
nation pretty eloquently somehow anyway.
