Bill Denton wrote about a reference to Christopher Metress's "Reading the Rara Avis" in the Winter 2005 edition of Clues Magazine:
  That title caught my eye. What's the article about?

************ Ah! I should have included the complete title:
"Reading the Rara Avis: Seventy-Five Years of Maltese Falcon Criticism." And that just about says it all. Metress describes criticism pertaining to Hammett's novel over the last 75 years. At least one of Metress's claims to fame must be the most expensive book on Hammett criticism on the market, The Critical Response to Hammett.
