RARA-AVIS: Re: Memento

While we're on a reversal theme (and getting back to books), I recommend Martin Amis's TIME'S ARROW. He never gets as deep as you want him to go but he sure knows how to have fun with words. Not noir or HB, I know. But he did write NIGHT TRAIN. I've had that one on my shelf for years, unread, bruised and bloody from the slagging it's got from virtually every genre fan but still standing, calling me. I suspect I'll love it. But I'm just a little afraid to read it in case I don't.
