Re: RARA-AVIS: "female noir"

Date: 28 Apr 2005

  Hi, John, Sorry to make you "harrumph"! I was hoping you'd have a comment. After talking to you about Ig Love, those years ago, I really thought that the sex scene was the main problem. That was an overstatement about "feeding me the commercial idea...." I didn't mean to imply that your statement wasn't true--I always felt that the cut was due to both the sexual issue and the detective issue, but didn't understand which was the priority. It's been a long time, and what stuck in my mind was your saying that I'd done things that couldn't be done, and I thought it was mainly the sexual content and not the placement of it. I also didn't realize the extent that putting in a detective affects the perception of the novel. I wish I would have. Now I'm wondering about the detective in Cruel Poetry. He could be next to get the ax. Vicki
