manuel says: It was a dark and stormy night in Denver, but Pelecanos made it to the Tattered Cover. Not a bad crowd, considering the weather. He gave some good answers to the typical questions why read crime fiction [it's writing that talks about things that won't be written about in literary fiction, Bonfire of the Vanities was nothing but lies, something about racism, etc.]) Next stop, Southern Cal.
****************************************** hahaha. i'll always remember tom wolfe as author of the hippy treatise, _the electric kool-aid acid test_, but
_bonfires of the vanities_ was a pretty big hit too. its about a rich dude that does a hit-and-run on a black guy in the bronx.

george has stated on the list that the book is a lie cuz it says that racism is a rich person's problem. at least i think thats the way it goes.

and whats that! southern cal! better get your pelecanos books and head for the store, mark! ;-)
