Re: RARA-AVIS: Harry Crews

Date: 20 Apr 2005

Hi, Kent, I forgot about The Hawk is Dying! I'm so excited to hear that it will be a film this year. I certainly hope it comes to the S. FL area. We are somehow cut off when it comes to film culture. Yes, Blood and Grits is fabulous. And lets not forget This Thing Don't Lead to Heaven. Might be one of his rarest, however. His early hardbacks go for upwards of $300 last time I looked, several years ago, and are hard to find. I'm not sure how many are available in paperback. I just sent Charlie Stella the Classic Crews that includes A Childhood, Gypsy's Curse, and Car, but I don't think he's read them yet. I also sent him Larry Brown's FAY, which he went crazy over, and has reviewed on his website, if anyone is interested. Charlie and Anne Marie hosted me for a weekend of fun when Cheapskates came out. It's hard to believe anybody that nice, and soft on dogs, can write so hard and mean! Charlie's website is always fun because he keeps you up on people like Ken Bruen and Jason Starr and how they all go out eating and drinking. His new book Cheapskates is as tough as you can find.
