RARA-AVIS: Re: Les romans de Gil Brewer

From: George Tuttle ( noirfiction@whoever.com)

Thanks to Karin Montin! She e-mailed me about the Biblioth豵e Nationale de France (http://www.bnf.fr) and I found a wealth of information. I was trying to access this database through http://www.theeuropeanlibrary.org and had been failing to get as many hits (probably operator error). Direct access worked much better. Most of my questions, French-wise, are answered. I may still have some problems with the language. (I think the only reason why I did not fail French in college was because the professor had a crush on me.)

For those of you keeping score at home: L'ɣharpe Rouge (The Red Scarf), Pas de Boulettes! (Angel), A la Courte Paille (Three-Way Split), La Dame Est un Tr鳯r (Sugar), and Plus Morts Que Riches (So Rich, So Dead).
