I’d never heard of Dashiell Hammet, I realise I know of some of what he’s written but I’d never heard the name. But then last week I saw this picture, commented about the cool name and Luce mention Hammet. The next day I was reading the latest Arena and there it is, a mention of Hammet in a review of Brick so I’m already thinking “random moment” post but I forgot about it. Then just now I head to Coudal and what’s there right on the banner? Hammet’s Maltese Falcon. I guess that means I’ve got to pick up one of his books.
The Coudal image directly for when it’s not ont the front page anymore.
