    thanks for introducing me to Emo probably would never have encountered him otherwise. B y the way, and a propos nothing, Elmore Leonard died today-another of the best to take the long hike. And in memory of another of the best, I’m re-reading all of the Travis McGee novels of John D. MacDonald. If you have any recs for several, or even one, of his stand alones, please share with me as I’m not intending to read all of them!

    Afraid not. It’s years since I read John D.

    Have you ever read any Chester Himes?

    Never have-probably have missed something worthy if you recommend him. Brit? Amer?

    Strange–since I thrive on mystery–detective-PI and often violent novels, that I have never even heard of CH but Googled him and read his history-violent and tragic so assume his books echo his history. Might try one when-and if-I ever complete my John D. readings. and YOURS, of course.
