I love the way he does that, like this view of a demolished old pier - "It was the elephants' graveyard, the pier at night, all dark bones and a lid of a fog over it, and the sea rushing in to bury, reveal, and bury again".
Great book! ( )

Deeply invested in style and setting, the story doesn't have much else going for it. The language and grotesque characters will probably stick with me for a while, though. ( )

I didn't plan it this way, but for me the turning of the year was bookended by two Ray Bradbury titles. I started Death Is a Lonely Business (1985) near the end of December because it was available on my Kindle and I was stuck lying down, nursing a sore back. It ended up being my final book of 2017.

I hadn't read a Bradbury novel in decades and had him pretty much lodged in my mind as a writer of pulp sci-fi short stories--a more than competent one, to be sure, but for me not the stuff of a steady diet.

So I was taken by surprise by the depth and complexity of the novel, from its predominant theme of death and its agents to the delicate, wavering balance between illusion and consensual reality accomplished by locating the imaginative flights in the mind of the first-person narrator, whose name we never learn. Thematic elements, lush evocation of time and place, and quirky characters that stop short of grotesquerie by virtue of their humanity round out the quasi-detective story with its backdrop of Los Angeles neighborhoods.

Bradbury was 65 when he wrote it, and that's not too young to be pondering the transitory nature of things.

From LibraryThing I learned that this book is the first of three so-called Crumley Mysteries. Detective Lieutenant Crumley does have a role to play, but he is present more as a catalyst than as a major actor. It is not first of all a detective story but rather an almost mystical meditation on death and life and how people's lives intertwine.

And so when I ran out of pages in Death Is a Lonely Business, I downloaded the second, A Graveyard for Lunatics: Another Tale of Two Cities (1990), which became my first completed work of 2018.

Discovering this dimension of Bradbury after so long is a refreshing surprise and a bright spot at the start of a perilous year. ( )

Bon mais plutôt déplaisant ( )

This was a strange, cool, frustrating book that, in the end, I just couldn't finish. I made it halfway through. I definitely enjoyed in parts, but the endless metaphors and general lack of anything happening did me in.

With love to Don Congdon, who caused it to happen.

And to the memory of Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain, and Ross Macdonald.

And to my friends and teachers Leigh Brackett and Edmond Hamilton, sorely missed.
