good to see you back. did you read faulkner's "the bear"? whoops! i guess thats not hardboiled so its not discussable here. _as i lay dying_ is my favorite faulkner. i searched the archives after i read cormac mccarthy's _blood meridian_ and noticed that you had commented on him. i guess i'm going to read _child of god_ next. incest, rape, and murder. oh boy! my favorites! i think i'll avoid that trilogy work. it sounded like it got a bit sentimental and "lonesome dovish" to me. i'll pass on that.
