What I would really like this year is a new book by Don Winslow. I know he's been busy but I've read everything from the jazzy writing of Savages and Kings of Cool, to the surf crowd's The Dawn Patrol and The Gentlemen's Hour, Frankie Machine, Death and Life of Bobby Z, Satori, California Fire and Life, and I recently reread Power of the Dog for the 3rd time. I've read the 1st and the last of the Neal Careys but they've been out of print so long, they are hard to come by. I guess I will reread the older books as I so impatiently wait for a new Winslow but if you could whisper in his ear and get him to hurry up, it would be the very best of Christmas presents. I've tried to be good this year so pretty please. Oh gosh, I must've been good as I just noticed one of the old Neal Carey books has appeared on our shelves!
Thank you, Santa.
