RE: RARA-AVIS: Themes of the months

<<Can anybody help me with a list of some pre-1930 hardboiled novelists? I stress novelists because I'm just not much of a short story reader.>>

There's Raoul Whitfield's _Green Ice_, the first noir novel, from 1930. Burnett's _Little Caesar_ is another title worth discussing. And Daly wrote the abominable _The Hidden Hand_ in 1928, I think. John Dos Passos's _The 42nd Parallel_ is from 1930. Did James T. Farrell publish any novels in the twenties? At some point, we are going to have to deal with Farrell.
