Re: RARA-AVIS: Question about Ross MacDonald's works

From: Brian Thornton (
Date: 13 Mar 2007

I was just revisiting MacDonald while writing something about his female characters for an anthology a friend is editing, so he's pretty fresh in my mind.

They all stand alone pretty well. For my money, he really hit his stride during the years between 1959 and 1965. Check out any of these: THE GALTON CASE, THE CHILL, BLACK MONEY, THE WYCHERLY WOMAN, and THE ZEBRA-STRIPED HEARSE. BLACK MONEY, a crime-fiction twist on THE GREAT GATSBY, was MacDonald's personal favorite among all of his works.

Hope this helps!
