Re: RARA-AVIS: Hammett review

<There's a semi-brutal review of the Library of America's new Hammett collection in the September 9 issue of the New York Times Book Review. It's clear from the second sentence that the reviewer doesn't like Hammett. It's even more clear at the end.>>

Is it as misguided as Oates's dismissal of the LoA Chandler collection? Why don't they get somebody qualified to review these specialized reissues? I would be happy with, say, Bill Crider.
