RARA-AVIS: Re: Cain Line

Al Guthrie wrote me off-list to remind me of Thompson's first noir novel, Nothing More Than Murder, which is heavily influenced by Cain - although it does has a lot of pure Thompson touches to it. Also, that when Thompson taught a college creative writing course, Double Indemnity was on the reading list (didn't know that gem - thanks Al!) So I guess Cain did have some influence on Thompson, although I don't see it in Thompson's later noir novels.
