I finally read When The Sacred Gin Mill Closes. Most of you already know that Block's novel is many things in addition to a great crime story. It has to be one of the all time drinking books. Coincidentally, I also recently reread The Thin Man, another novel where drinking has an important role, written by a person who apparently knew what he was talking about. I recall that a good chunk of Crumley's The Last Good Kiss takes place in bars. Any other alcohol-soaked tales you would recommend? I must be interested because a bout with a virus has put me on the wagon for a couple of weeks. Manuel Ramos
