The Gentlemen’s Hour

Roughly four months ago, I received a lovely little package of books from Duane Swierczynski. It contained some great stuff from authors I never read before and, quite possibly, may not have picked up on my own. In the case of Don Winslow that would have been a massive error.

First: He lived, for a brief time, in RI. This may not matter to anyone else outside the 1, 045 miles of America’s smallest state, but for a place that can only really boast H.P. Lovecraft, Poe (while sober), and Cormac McCarthy, we grapple all personage of interest and hold them in a octopod* death grip.

Second: The book is about surfing. A detective pulp with surfing? Yes. Winslow manages to take the darkness and brutality of the pulps and make it digestible for Southern California lifestyle.

Third: This is the guy who penned the Trevanian prequel! Oliver Stone is turning his novel Savages into a film with John Travolta and Uma Thurman. Winslow is good.

Last: Its a chance to play some surf rock, some 80′s punk, and to generally get ready for summer.
