RARA-AVIS: Drive - by James Sallis

I just finished « Drive » by James Sallis.
  I'm not sure it was already discussed here.
  A short, dense and gripping novel, a kind of homage to classic hard-boiled novels, but being neither a mockery nor a pasticcio of the genre.
  If the link to Westlake's Parkers is obvious, the quality of writing and its style evoke Hemingway in some parts of the novel. There is also the typical Sallis treatment of time lines…
  An excellent novel. By an excellent author.
  I recommend it to William Denton who, as we know all, looks after novels telling the story of characters with a professional attitude. Here, the central character, and others, fit the request: at a 200% level.
