Re: RARA-AVIS: Friedrich Durrenmatt

These novels are moody but not noir because they are realistic, even objective, despite the existentialist background. What I most remember is the literary quality and the clear-headed pessimistic atmosphere.

I would definitely recommend this author and his books. It's good to be ready in case we ever run out of Gold Medals and undiscovered pulpsters. Raravian retirement is a hard phase, I'm sure.
