Book Review

The Living Room of the Dead by Eric Stone

Bleak House Books, 2007

This is noir at its finest. Uncensored, raw and unpredictable. The fact that author, Eric Stone has lived and worked throughout Asia is apparent with lines like, “It’s drizzling the hot sour soup that squeezes out of the filthy tureen that a lot of the year passes for the sky over Hong Kong.” All the research or anecdotal information of place… Continue

Hey Ange,

Thinking of moving to Canada, can't stand the fires here in Los Angeles. Got any suggestions for a kewl place to live. Thinking of producing some film, too!

Best thoughts,

Eva Batonne

Well I finally did respond! Glad you like the place Ange, and glad someone thinks about it almost as often as I do. Except I don't really notice I'm thinking about it anymore ... it just happens.

Thanks for your thanks, Ange. I'm glad to see Christa on your list of favorites. She's a neighbor, good friend, and we cruise the boulevards of East L.A. in search of tacos together from time to time.

I like your "about me" section. "smoke slowly rising from my crib" is my kind of evocative.

Being in Canada, you might be interested in knowing that my book that's coming out in October is loosely based on the Bre-X gold fraud (sort of Canada's Enron) which I covered as a journalist in Indonesia.

But there actually is, or was, a famous and memorable John Connolly. He was the Texas governor riding with JFK on that fateful November day in 1963, and took a nonlethal bullet. For most folks, I think, John -- by being in the wrong place at the wrong time -- became more memorable. I don't think that Michael would have wanted to trade places.

It's Michael Connelly, not John. He's a client of Philip Spitzer, as is James Lee Burke.

That quote you posted on my page about hardboiled eggs is from Billy Wilder's brilliant Ace in the Hole, one of my favorite Film Noirs of all time.

Anyway welcome to Crimespace.
