Taking a break.
Having a theme for a month, where people can read any book by
a particular author or in a certain series or on a certain
topic, is easier all around than the old book-of- the-month
readings we'd do. It brings up a lot more discussion on the
list and it doesn't tie everyone to a certain book that may
be hard for them to find. I encourage everyone to read
something related to the theme of the month and mention it on
the list. All the regular RARA-AVIS talk goes on as well, of
Suggestions for future themes include: the continuing
question of hardboiled women writers, British writers (Derek
Raymond, etc.), Barry Gifford, Patricia Highsmith, W.R.
Burnett, Nick Tosches, politics, cities such as Los Vegas and
London, gangster-related books, and moral ambiquity.
