Just finished two books by Eddie Muller -- "Dark City: The Lost World of Film Noir" and "Dark City Dames: The Wicked Women of Film Noir." In the latter, Eddie interviews most of the surviving femme fatales from the Hollywood thrillers of the '40s and '50s, including Jane Greer, Evelyn Keyes, Audrey Totter and Ann Savage. Flinty, page-turning writing from the son of the famed San Francisco sports reporter.
Also got mesmerized by John Maclean's "Fire on the Mountain: The True Story of the South Canyon Fire." Solid investigative account of the Colorado firefighting disaster in which a blowup swallowed a crew of hotshots from Oregon. Tragic and timely. John's father Norman wrote the classic "A River Runs Through It."
