HERE'S WHAT H. P. OLIVER FANS ARE SAYING ABOUT
JOHNNY SPICER'S LOS ANGELES NOIR


THIS WAS FUN!

This is a lot shorter than the rest of HP's tales but no less interesting and entertaining. Johnny is my favorite character and he has quite a lot to say. Take a read all the way to the end and then investigate his fan site for more fascinating information. The discoveries are well worth the trip! Happy Reading!!!

GREAT QUOTATIONS (NOIR EDITION)

The world could use a book, "Great Quotations (Noir Edition)", and this might be a contender. As a Johnny Spicer fan, this compilation of Spicer's life observations had me laughing out loud. On a plane. Which did draw some attention. Well worth it!

A friend and I discussed this book, arriving at Noir Haiku as a possible description. If the definition of Haiku is loosely interpreted. Spicer is cutting, sort of misses the whole 17 syllables thing, and does have juxtaposition: "I noticed some working girls out on the Strip giving friendly waves to a passing sheriff's cruiser. Maybe they attend the same church."

This is an enjoyable read for Noir fans, maybe even a pocket reference for when you need a pithy line or two. I highlighted so many enjoyable Spicer observations my Kindle pages are now more yellow than white.

If you have read the Spicer book series, you'll enjoy this Kindle Short Read. If you have not yet read the series, here is your introduction to Mr. Spicer. Either way, this is entertaining, always period correct, and could cause you to Google a few things to learn about some historical references.
