Earlier this week Fresh Air on NPR re-broadcast a 1987 interview with novelist James Crumley. It was only nine minutes and I wish the entire interview had been aired, but alas it was still interesting.
One of the more poignant discussion topics was that Crumley would have liked his novels to have been published in mass-market rather than the more literati accepted trade-paperbacks. What he writes is more appropriate for that format, and would have found its natural audience. It was a terrific interview.
To hear it go Here.
