Re: RARA-AVIS: Re: Southern Fried hard-boiled writing

I enjoyed DOWN ON PONCE, but I found the humour was more Hiassen-like than Crumley-like. It was high on irony, but most of the humour was more direct, leading to an 'anything can happen' atmosphere, and taking away from any sense of realism. I find Crumley, on the other hand, to be as funny but more realistic, even though his characters go through situations as absurd as Williard's.
