I'm curious too. I've only read The Chill, and that was years ago, I didn't have a strong negative reaction like I've had with some, but thought McDonald didn't live up to the hype. certainly he didn't impress me the way many other authors, both classic and contemporary have. so yeah, I too would very much like to see what bugged Miker about Ross McDonald in particular, because I never gave it much thought beyond what I just expressed
