A Dash(iell) of Class
So I picked up “The Maltese Falcon” by Dashiell Hammett (1930). I’ve read this book maybe three or four other times. I’ve seen the Humphrey Bogart movie too many times to count. I know which scenes are coming up. I’ve memorized the dialogue.
And I still loved it.
Great story. Great structure. Great characters. Insanely perfect dialogue.
I love finding new writers and new mysteries. But every now and then, you just gotta go back to the classics.
