True. His writing had a special quality that can perhaps be described
as "momentum". The gift of the poet in disguise, very likely. Chandler
had it and Crumley had it. Some guys have a volcano inside of them,
and if they're able to channel its eruptions in a controlled fashion,
the writin can be incredible. Crumley will be much missed.
