Spillane's head will break the ground of his grave and spit burning devil tongues if anyone ever considers him literature. He's right and it's one thing that endears me to Mickey. He wasn't a pretentious phoney culture-climbing twit. But even in a pomo, decon, woosie and gutless world, Spillane will never be literature. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Sorry.)
