Re: RARA-AVIS: the new generation

The concept of "where's the action" is foolish. Books are strings of words. Block knows what he's doing. His Scudder series is a big seller and he worked hard to establish it. Like most series, it reaches a point of saturation, or changes too much for the taste of the reviewer... This type of review is both juvenile and predictable (the sum of all that is: cheap).

I can't imagine a hardboiled Parnassus without Block. And may he continue writing as well as he has done for more than 40 years.
