interesting. I just cracked open Queenpin after finishing Cruel Poetry. my first Abbott. she writes like a guy, from back in the day. Vicki's prose style in CP is kind of classic and literary, a departure from Miami Blues and Iguana Love, which are the other 2 of hers I've read. but contemporary at the same time
