The wiggle words in this statement are "a lot." It is equally true that "a lot" of the current hard boiled protagonists are as heroic and as far from loser land as their predecessors. IMO, the self acknowledged losers are still a minority voice, but maybe that reflects my reading choices more than it reflects the overall picture.
