tieresias wrote <snipped>: Speaking of good literature, I'm currently reading two worthwhile books: George P. Pelecanos' "Right As Rain," and an advance copy of Allan Guthrie's "Hope." I'm enjoying both of them, if for different reasons. Once I've finished both of them, I'll lay out for the list why I find Guthrie to be a better writer than Pelecanos (or at, least, in my own case, a "more preferable read," if we're being politically correct).

************** I've had the privilege of reading drafts of two Al Guthrie's novels, and they are both excellent. My favorite was KISS HER GOODBYE, which I think is going to print as TWO-WAY SPLIT. I can't wait to get a copy. Al is really talented.

Pelecanos's SWEET FOREVER ain't bad, either. He used to be on this list. He's a nice guy.
