RARA-AVIS: Re:Dorothy B Hughes

Dorothy Hughes also reviewed for the magazine "Mystery", published in Glendale in the early nineteen eighties. I think this was the last of her reviewing posts. I was also writing for "Mystery", contributing feature interviews, with W.R. Burnett, Jonathan Latimer, John Bright
(The Public Enemy), and also with Hughes herself. It was a thrill to get to know her and share the pages of the magazine. Though a private person, Hughes came across as gregarious and supportive, always ready to help a newcomer. Like Pauline Kael, she had her favorites, but nothing excited her more than a well-told tale.

I don't believe that any of her reviews have been collected.

Other who were reviewing in Southern California, at the San Diego Union, were Howard Browne and Bob Wade.
