RARA-AVIS: Re: Malcolm Braly

Malcolm Braly is one of the best of the Gold Medal authors. In terms of the quality of the words on the page, I'd go as far as to say that of the GM authors I've read, Braly's only rivalled by Charles Williams. ON THE YARD is a superb prison novel. Actually, no need to qualify that: it's a superb novel.

Having said that, I tried to read IT'S COLD OUT THERE twice and lost interest on both occasions. But I suspect that's my fault rather than Braly's, so I wouldn't say it was a bad novel (the writing's fine), just that the characters and milieu didn't hold my peculiar interest.
