Firsts Magazine, November 2009

Book collecting, first editions: Firsts Magazine for book collectors - November 2009: "James Lee Burke

We profiled Burke in our July 1991 issue, when it was clear that his Dave Robicheaux detective novels were among the best the genre had to offer. In course of the 18 years since, Burke has more than fulfilled his promise."

The article on Burke is by Robert Skinner, and it's a really good one. Highly recommended. There's also a good article on "Books into Film" that discusses The High Window, Time to Kill, and The Brasher Dubloon. Plus an article on C. J. Box.

I got to read THE LOST GET-BACK BOOGIE which I'd gotten for a friend - terrific book, I didn't want that one to end.
