Pulp Fiction

Pulp Fiction Week has started at Slate!  They say take Dashiell Hammett to the beach, but I say pick up Chandler's The Big Sleep and when you're done reading it, check out the film starring a young Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart.

If you really like crime fiction, and I do, you might want to take a look at the sort of obscure New York writer Jerome Charyn, who does some interesting things with the genre.  He's written something like 35 novels now but anything from the Isaac Quartet is well worth reading.
