RARA-AVIS: Just read Perchance to Dream

From: funkmasterj@runbox.com

I didn't even know about this book until the recent discussion. I just read it yesterday & today.

It's a quick, easy read, not a bad book. The plot, but not the prose, was Chandleresque, including how Marlowe did get knocked out, as I recall he did in every Chandler novel. However, I really didn't understand the point of the direct quotes from the Big Sleep mixed in the novel and pointedly all in italics. All they seemed to do is show that Robert Parker isn't Raymond Chandler.
