 Well, I am certainly looking forward to reading more Manchette, and French noir in general. Aside from Manchette's Prone Gunman, all I've read is Japrisot's Lady In the Car with Glasses and a Gun, which I enjoyed immensely
(Jonquet's Mygale is on the "to be read" pile). Any other French authors in the same vein who come highly recommended?
