Maxine sends this along ...

... with the following note: "Ah, D. H.! Nobody can come close! " - Red Harvest -- Dashiell Hammett.

Red Harvest has one of my favorite lines ever: "I haven't laughed so hard since the hogs ate my kid brother."

    In "The Thin Man" Nick Charles says, “They’re all sex-crazy, I think, and it backs up into their heads.” That makes you imagine all sorts of things. I like even better Hammett's comment about himself: “I stopped writing because I was repeating myself. It is the beginning of the end when you discover you have style.”
