How come I never heard of Kenneth Fearing before? The Big Clock is a sophisticated, cleverly handled noir with a great plot set-up. Its execution is flawless. Another great NYRB re-issue, and well worth a couple hours of your life.

[The Daedalus bookstore in Belvedere Square has allowed me to triple the number of volumes in my NYRB re-issue library of late. They've got cheap copies by the dozen.]
