Re: RARA-AVIS: Movies Better Than Books

Actually, it's "L. A. Confidential" where Buzz meets his demise in the first chapter. Are you thinking perhaps of "The Big Nowhere" the previous book in the quartet in which Buzz is featured? Btw, didn't care much for Brown's Requiem either, but a movie was made recently of it too starring Michael Rooker. Nothing to write home about as I remember.
