RARA-AVIS: Soul Circus (slight return)

From: Ed Lynskey ( e_lynskey@yahoo.com)

I remember Bill and others reading and commenting on George Pelecanos' SOUL CIRCUS earlier in the spring. That, in part, motivated me to give it a read. I wasn't disappointed. Maybe the novel could've been shorter. I also miss the spontaneous edgy moods found in his earlier books. (A FIRING OFFENSE, for instance).

Bill mentioned, Jason Starr and Scott Phillips write in the old Gold Medal vein (no pun intended). Now they'll go on my TBR stacks.

BTW, speaking of Pelecanos and the musical references in his writing, Noel Redding passed away this week. I'll have to break out those Jimi Hendrix vinyls and give them another listen.
