    read hardboiled novelist from the early period of the genre, oh, and, W. R. Burnett. And Cornell Woolrich really belongs to that period as well. His career, like Cain's lasted into the 60s.

    Burnett is largely forgotten these days, but I still like his books. They have a raw earthiness that I find appealing. And obviously, his stuff filmed well... The last one I reread was High Sierra, but I still have a bunch I haven't read, including his last book, Goodbye, Chicago.
