That was the last Woolrich book I read some six or seven years ago. I
really liked it at the time. Right now, I'm hip deep in Francis
Nevins' doorstop biography.
Side note: I've seen in other places that the bio/lit-crit form is on
the outs in Academia right now, and I just can't fathom that. I don't
think I've ever read a bio about an author that didn't attempt to tie
their writing corpus directly into their personal experiences. I know
there's other ways of looking at it, but to me, that's what most fans
who are interested in a particular writer WANT to know about. Speaking
as one who wrote such a book, it would have been retarded to try it
any other way.
