Thanks very much; really glad you liked the piece. Manchette was pretty well-read in American noir and detective stories, so he may well have been aware of Hammett's Flitcraft. I wouldn't be surprised. As for the biography, no, it hasn't been translated into English as far as I know. I've e-mailed my contact at City Lights to ask whether they plan to issue any more Manchette titles in translation--will let you know what I find out.
