Miscellaneous: Mystery*File

The latest installment of my column ‘In The Frame’ is now up at Steve Lewis’s excellent Mystery*File. I review Massimo Carlotto’s The Goodbye Kiss and Patrick Hamilton’s Hangover Square, both from foreign fiction specialists Europa Editions. I also revive an old feature of this website, Remake Rematch, to consider the 1947 and 1995 versions of the noir classic Kiss of Death. Check it out.

Miscellaneous: Blasphemy of the Day

During the “It’s Not TV, It’s HBO” ad that lead into last night’s Sopranos/Big Love extravaganza, I realized that I’m more excited about this summer’s return of Deadwood.
