Monosyllabic puberty

John Crace on how Dick Francis's books helped him survive his adolescence. (Alison Flood calls the Francis corpus "chick lit for men.")

I have been haunted all week by the conviction that I must come up with a concept that will let me seamlessly execute Franciscan thrillers on an annual basis...


  1. Cadfael? No, that's Benedictine, not Franciscan...

  2. Did you watch the Donald Westlake (aka Richard Stark) interview on Ed Park's blog? He talks about writing 3 (!!!) Parker novels per year.
