  Check out Eddie Luller's review in this morning's San Francisco Chronicle:

  His first two paragraphs ....
  Don't make the mistake I made and read Allan Guthrie's Hard Man (Harcourt; 268 pages; $23) on an airplane. You'll have to wait too long to take a hot shower.

  The Scotsman's latest excursion into "extreme noir" manages to be simultaneously sickening and slapstick-silly, as if Eli Roth ("Hostel") decided to direct a Laurel and Hardy movie.

  Hmmmm.

  Today's new foriegn phrase:

  "Ú░íter le bourgeois": "to shock the middle classes"
