RE : RARA-AVIS: B.Traven

  IMO you can forget B. Traven's work, not easily readable.
  Of course, as I don't read German fluently, I could not check the version of Death Ship that he first published during the twenties. Many versions, many also "reduced" by editors…
  I think that looking for a work on his life will be far more interesting. It's a real saga.
  There were also two very good documentaries (for TV) depicting his life, works… and explaining once for all the identity problem and its solutions.
  But I do not have the ref for the documentaries any more.

Michael Robison <> a 飲it : I'm on vacation down in Jacksonville, Florida, and I've been visiting some of the used bookstores down here. Checked out the Tappin Book Mine today and walked away with The Real Cool Killers. That place is always good for classic hardboiled. I've been thinking I might want to walk through the whole series after reading Cottom Comes to Harlem several years back. They had Traven's (sp?) Death Ship, but after thumbing through it, I didn't think it looked too exciting.
