Don't encourage me, guys!

Here's another recent discovery: Erskine Caldwell's novella, THE BASTARD (1929). I think this was his first-published longer work. Much of Caldwell's work isn't noir. This fella is. Very much so. Highly transgressive.

  I'll second that sentiment. I've read dozens of books Al has
  recommended, some of them pretty obscure, which involved some serious
  hunting to find. But it almost always pays off.
