Re: Writing the same book, over and over (was)RARA-AVIS: Chandler or Hammett

Isn't it true the some people, for whatever reason, want the same story over and over? Kids seem especially inclined that way. I remember that mine watched re-runs of Gilligan's Island again and again, even though they knew the lines by memory. And they loved having the same books read to them over and over. So maybe Stout and Macdonald (both writers I hold in high regard) were onto something.
