WRITE MURDER DOWN by Richard Lockridge


Email this review


Mr. Lockridge goes his own pleasant way ignoring modern times (or its casualties, like the restaurant so prominently featured here) and this one deals with the suicide? murder? of a successful novelist found in a Greenwich Village apartment although she really lived at the Algonquin hotel. There's a red-bearded young man and her brother and her publisher and her agent to be suspiciously considered and to give you a view of the literary lowlife (well before Clifford Irving). He gives his olderfangled audience the benefit of a different and not very demanding story each time in a habitat they think they recognize or would like to.
