RARA-AVIS: Joseph Hansen

I just finished his ouvre of 12 books fetauring Dave Brandstetter. They stood on my shelf for a long time. When you're hetero, you don't want to read about faggots. But those are real good, hardboiled crime novels! I was surprised, meself. The writing style is kind of Hemingwayisk, the plots are not so bad, and you really get to like the protagonist - Dave. A blurb on one of his books calls him "ruggedly masculine and contentedly homosexuual". I thought sometimes while reading that the books should have been written in the *I*-mode - the first person. But the homosexual viewpoint never got to me once. Surprise? Well - yes.
