But I'm often surprised. I had just written Charles Willeford off as a guy who writes the same tawdry book over and over when I read, recommended on this list, SHARK FILLED CUSTARD. That was both thought provoking and brilliantly executed piece of writing. So I'll give at least one of your recommendations a chance. Thanks for the actual reply to my question.
This comment about Willeford sounds strange to me. He definitely did not write the same thing over and over... Of the books by JDM you mention, I think theThe Deep Blue Goodbye and Cape Fear are excellent, the others not so good, though they certainly entertaining reads.
