Writer Block

At long last, Lawrence Block's novels about Evan Tanner, the polymath insomniac spy, are back in print!

Block's books about the alcoholic PI, Matt Scudder, have long been my favorite mysteries of all time: gritty and noirish, mostly realistic, with a cast of memorable lowlifes and weirdos, packed with dialogue as snappy as pistol fire. The Tanner novels are bit more madcap and require a little more suspension of disbelief, but they're fun as hell.

So, anyway, I've been reading all day.

Nothing much better than a great book and time to read it. Enjoy!
