    I have been on a rereading binge for about a year, and last week I took up Himes, his All Shot Up and The Big Gold Dream... fantastic, better even than I remembered. If anybody here has not read Himes, head for a bookstore or a library and do it! These hardboiled novels have it all: humor, surrealism, street savvy, great dialogue, great plots, and they are hardboiled as hell.
