I am very fond of that style that gives you information only in little
bits and always comes at an angle. Sallis is a great practitioner.
Another one (totally outside of crime fiction) is the late Peter
Taylor, whose novels and short stories (especially) I highly
recommend. I mention Taylor because nowadays not that many people know
about him. Even the name Walker Percy has lost resonance and
I am pretty sure that Sallis is headed for classicism... I know, I'll
never win the lottery, but in this one I feel confident.
