RARA-AVIS: Re Archer and Macdonald

From: dgreene@odu.edu
Date: 29 Aug 2001

Ross Macdonald did too often tell the same story, but it was a good story, and the psychological depth he invests in his writing, his sense of place, and the often aching feeling of loss--all these make him a great novelist.

I say this even though I cannot claim lack of prejudice--one of the proudest moments for my specialist press, Crippen & Landru, was publishing earlier this year STRANGERS IN TOWN: THREE NEWLY DISCOVERED MYSTERIES, by Ross Macdonald, edited by Tom Nolan.
