Re: The Small House at Allington
Outlaws by George V. Higgins. It was recommended by David Mamet in an interview for its "amazing dialogue." Since i consider Mamet's plays to have pretty amazing dialogue, I was interested to read what has influenced him. It's a very odd crime novel in that it cuts out all the action scenes in favor of extended dialogue scenes that occur just prior to or in the aftermath of the action. The dialogue is, in fact, very good.
And what's the recreational reading?
