Jul 15, 2013 in Mulholland Authors, Television, Writing

It’s a rare pleasure to be a fly on the wall during a conversation between Richard Lange and George Pelecanos, two crime fiction masters. Below is our transcript of their exchange, which ranges widely and rivetingly across such subjects as empathy, prisons, the writing process, and why vets make ideal detectives. Angel Baby by Richard […]

Lauren Beukes’s Film and TV Inspirations

Jun 07, 2013 in Film, Guest Posts, Mulholland Authors, Television, Uncategorized

The Shining Girls is a mash-up of a thing: part serial killer thriller, part old-fashioned romantic buddy caper, part time-travel twister. The TV shows and movies that had a major influence on me generally, which I think played into the writing of this book, are: Memento for its twisty out-of-order storytelling True Grit for a […]

One-Shot Stopping

Jul 11, 2012 in Fiction, Film, Guest Posts, Television, Writing

One of the worst myths created by movies and TV is the one-shot stop. You know how it goes: an action-adventure hero runs into a warehouse filled with bad guys. A gunfight breaks out. The hero runs through a maze of crates and equipment and takes down every bad guy he encounters until he reaches […]

On Mildred Pierce: A Conversation with Laura Lippman

May 03, 2012 in Books, Guest Posts, Television

Both Laura Lippman and myself are ardent, perhaps obsessive fans of the James M. Cain novel, Mildred Pierce. For just that reason, we both had been avoiding watching the HBO miniseries starring Kate Winslet and Guy Pearce and directed by Todd Haynes. Finally, with the series now on DVD, I surrendered and watched it, as […]

All About the Bad Guy

Dec 17, 2010 in Books, Guest Posts, Television

A couple of weeks ago, I started watching The Sopranos. I never watched it when it was on television, because at the time everyone else in the world was so over the moon about it. I hate things that other people tell you you should see. It’s the reason I never saw Avatar, and why […]

The Murders in Memory Lane: Remembering Henry Kane

Nov 22, 2010 in Books, Guest Posts, Television, Writing

Henry Kane’s pretty much forgotten these days, with all his work out of print.  You can Google him, as I did, and you’ll unearth a great deal of information that way, some of it true.  And you can find copies of his books on eBay and Amazon and other used-book sources.  He wrote over sixty […]
