One can start his weekend reading with a NYT review of Elmore Leonards latest novel 'Road Dogs'.
Or with the novel itself of course
I wish i was the owner of this advance reader's adition.. anyway we can only hope it will appear as soon as possible. Why?
Well after Blood's a Rover Mr. Ellroy will publish a memoir ('The Hilliker Curse) on his relationship with women and then will resume his fiction work set in 1948 Los Angeles with as far as i can decipher Dudley Smith as main character.
More on the man and his work can be read here.
Start the weekend in the right way with some reading to do, for instance here in the NYT with a bio on Flannery O' Connor. Enjoy!
Studs Terkel, the Pulitzer prize-winning author passed away recently. Read more about him in the obituary from The Guardian.
A new James Ellroy is coming, just a year from now! You can read a tiny little bit more here. Just reading the content of the book gives me good that i can spend my summer holiday in 2010 with this new gem ;-)
Just started counting the days....
James Crumley passed away, you can read the N.Y.T. obit here. I haven't read a lot of him, but what i read i liked a lot. Rest in peace Mr. Crumley.
