For issue number three of ALL DUE RESPECT, JJ Kinni puts together a road story that fuses the wandering prose of Jack Kerouac with some nice elements of all-American debauchery we would expect to find in a Jim Thompson or James Ellroy novel. The result is "Open Roads and Freebirds," a story that moves from post-World War II alienation to the dawn of the free love movement in San Francisco.Other links in my cyber travels: An interview with Sara Paretsky where Chandler is brought up in an unfavorable light | The Novelist Wars | Car crashes into Stephen King's Gate | and That Nameless Stranger, Half a Century Later.
