THE DISTANCE (and its follow up SHADOW BOXER) is one of my all time favourite books. Eddie Muller is a wonderful fiction writer (as well as being THE expert on noir in my opinion - his non fiction is written with the same great style and panache as his fiction). My Christmas wish would be more fiction from Muller- he's one of the very best as far as I'm concerned.
