LOGGING THE LIBRARY - PART TWENTY-ONE

The start of the second thousand!

Here's the next tub of 50........
Pre-logging view!


John Fullerton, Dave White, Erwin James, James Hawes and Nathan Heard 

Non-fiction account of prison time - author's now does Journo-pieces at The Guardian 

No idea what this is about.

4 Tim Dorsey books - sandwiching Joseph Wambaugh

A couple of Wambaugh's, 2 from James W. Hall and Steve Hamilton

Tess Gerritsen. another prison account - Jimmy Boyle, Robert Rankin and a couple of Elmore Leonards.

Read last year or in 2013, so now banished from the library! Still a great book.

Joseph Wambaugh x 2, Cormac McCarthy, Elmore again, Tim Dorsey again.

Late 60's Elmore

Robert Barret (AUS), Wambaugh, McCarthy, 2 from Elmore

Leonard cut his teeth writing Westerns - 1961 this one.

Wambaugh - double, Gary Phillips, William Cauiniz, another from Steve Hamilton

House brick time

4 from George V. Higgins, 1 from Jasper Fforde

Great cover!

Greater cover!

3 more Leonard Westerns, a Vietnam book from Susan Fromberg Schaeffer, and Megan Abbott,

1972

1959

James Hawes, Newton Thornburg, George V. Higgins, another Wambaugh, Charles Durden, 

Vietnam war fiction

The replacement book for the Valdez/Leonard book, Ted Lewis and a novel of sexual awakening! Better get straight to it then!




Thoughts on tub 21 and books 1001 - 1050, nothing scary here. I ought to read Joseph Wambaugh sometime soon, but I could say that about a lot of my books, Looking forward to re-reading the Leonard Westerns and a bit about prison time.

  1. Not surprised to see Wambaugh and Leonard here, Col. I hope you'll enjoy them (and, of course, the rest of what you have there, too).

    1. Thank you Margot. Looking forward to a lot of these.

  2. I played a little game here: Nathan Heard, Howard Street. Which was title, which author? I got it wrong. But Nathan Heard would be a great title I think. The cover of The Rabbit has left me speechless. (If I ever need that picture for the blog - I won't be covering the book.)

    1. Both have a ring to them....Howard Street if you're interested.....Howard Street is a street of doomed souls - whores, junkies, pushers, winos, thieves and corrupt cops. This novel relates and entwines individual stories revealing a community whose lives and aspirations are tempered by poverty and the omnipotence of drugs.
      I've read it before, but it'll stand a re-read. Heard was a black American author, this one was late 60's.

      Haha - you can see it again tomorrow... 2 BY TED LEWIS!
      You never know you may change your mind!

      As an aside - did you see I get to read IRONSIDE for the PO March meme?

  3. Col, I haven't read Joseph Wambaugh in several years though I'd scarcely remember what I read then. Thanks for the reminder. You're right, "Valdez is Coming" is a very good book and I'm going to read it. Strangely, I haven't sampled Leonard's westerns yet. I'd say he and Wambaugh are the picks of your Tub 21 though I spotted more new authors, like Tim Dorset, for instance.

    1. It's been a similar length of time for me in respect of Wambaugh. Dorsey's crime fiction is laced with humour which isn't everyone's cup of tea.

  4. I still have not read any Elmore Leonard. I have to get to some of his books this year.

    2. Nice to see you're so organised. When will you start clearing a space for the new stacks?

    3. That is the problem. I do hope to go through some books and pass them on to others, and read a few between now and then. And buy less this year.

    4. Good luck with that wish....haha, More in than out, I reckon.
