Woodrell mentions these writers as noir writers:
Thompson, Cain, Edward Anderson, Charles Williams, Kromer, James Ross,
LeSieur, Goodis and the rest
Who are "Kromer" and "LeSieur"? Never heard of them, and since I've been on
this list for almost a decade now (with a year or two absent, though), I
should think I've heard every important noir writer at least once.
PS. I once tried a Woodrell and couldn't get far. The plot was lacking and
the characters were boring machos.
