I just found this book this week while I was organizing my collection (it was buried in a box for years). After reading your fine review, it goes to the top of the Read Real Soon stack.

I particularly like the inter-connection of "literary" authors and crime fiction. I hate such distinctions, anyway, because to me, it's all "literature," and labels are just unnecessarily divisive. That's why I prefer "crime fiction" to refer to all subgenres and not further subdivide them into "cozies," "thrillers," "procedurals," or whatever. I think most readers are smart enough to read a book blurb and know what they're getting.
