Especially enjoyed his readings of movies and music, helped me think about the period in a whole new way--and watch some great films along the way.

QUOTE: "The sheer complication of plot in detective stories like Dashiell Hammett’s first novel, Red Harvest (1929), is another element of hard-boiled writing that found its way into screwball comedy, where the stories are invariably full of baroque complications and zany reversals."
