RARA-AVIS: Some questions and ephemera

Every time Ted Lewis comes up, I remember a novel I picked up some time ago: Reg Gladney's SOMETHING WORTH FIGHTING FOR from 1974. I have a Panther paperback, but it seems it was a Heinemann hardback first. The book really feels like something Ted Lewis might've written. The backpage copy says:
"Extortionist. That's what Klovoski is. And dope-pedlar, racketeer, vice-king - a very nasty piece of work." Has anyone read this or anything else by Gladney?


Dorothy Hughes: I didn't like IN A LONELY PLACE, but I liked RIDE THE PINK HORSE. It's noir and also hardboiled, which is a mix not very common with female writers.


Huston's FAT CITY is one of his best films.


An author I haven't liked even though I have tried:

Daniel Woodrell


I think I'll be doing a sleaze report before starting the Christmas celebrations.
