RARA-AVIS: RE: Howard Browne

  Re the big lesbian surprise, without spoiling the novel by naming it, didn't Spillane, whom Browne once rewrote/edited, beat him to it?

Browne's best novel, arguably, is "A Taste of Ashes." About as close to Chandler as you can get, which may be why Browne and Chandler, though approximate neighbors in La Jolla, Ca., didn't get together too often for cocktails.
