RARA-AVIS: Re: RARA-AVIS Digest V4 #547

Bill, Thanks for calling my attention to the review of Heartbreak & Vine: the Fate of Hardboiled Writers in Hollywood on the BBC website. At the risk of blowing my own trumpet, the official publication date for the book is October 17th in Britain and Feb. in the US. For anyone interested, and living in the vicinity of London, I'll be giving a reading and saying a few words about the book on October 23rd at the Garage. I'm also hoping to be in the US- or at least the west coast- in Feb. and will keep you posted about events there. Regarding the book itself, just to say that it not only tells the story of various hardboiled writers in Hollywood- the usual suspects, as well as a number who are often overlooked- but contains interviews with the likes of Bezzerides, Petievich, Crumley, Wambaugh, Burke, Leonard, Ellroy, Bunker, Westlake, Pelecanos, Lehane, etc..
