Da Vinci CodePart of me really wants to agree with the premise of this article (that there is a resurgence in stories about private eyes and detectives and the mystery genre in general, especially in film), but the author uses Superman Returns, Miami Vice, and X-Men 3 as examples, and that just makes me scratch my head.

But as long as James Sallis is one of the people interviewed, I'm all for it. Of course, calling Sallis "a Phoenix author whose crime novel Drive has been optioned by Universal" is a bit like saying "William Shakespeare, a Stratford-upon-Avon writer, will have his Romeo and Juliet made into a film later this year." Sallis is one of the great writers of our time.

Another way you know this article, a piece about the return of the gumshoe, is woefully incomplete? Brick isn't even mentioned! If anything, it should be the main point in the piece.
