RARA-AVIS: I can't resist

From: abc@wt.net

I've been sitting on the sidelines of the sidekick talk, but I can't resist mentioning the fact that Parker has a PhD in English. Considering when he recieved the degree, I'd be willing to bet he read Leslie Fiedler's LOVE AND DEATH IN THE AMERICAN NOVEL or at least had some idea of what it was about. We can carry the light/dark hero/sidekick idea right back to Natty Bumppo if we want to, and while Parker would probably shudder if we said that the real love story in his books was the one between Hawk and Spenser, how far off would we be? I'll go back to lurking now.
