Cameron Hughes has collected the thoughts of crime writers about the meaning of Donald Westlake’s death in the world of crime fiction. Kevin Burton Smith, Joseph Finder, Ken Bruen, Laura Lipppman, Colin Cotterill, Ali Karim, and Harlen Coben are some of the writers and critics who contributed. The Rap Sheet carries the tributes.

 

Also, I contributed my thoughts about Westlake writing as Richard Stark.

The character of professional criminal Parker was a shot fired by a precision marksman. It still echoes in the ear of many contemporary crime writers. Writing as Richard Stark, Westlake, novel by novel, showed us the rational, calculating, unsentimental Parker, the career criminal, the clear-eyed professional, anticipating the plays of other characters in the novels like a chess grand master. Parker planned his jobs like Special Forces operations, working with other freelance criminals to carry out an operation. In Parker, Westlake created a character who had survived because he understood the weakness of those around him and how ... [they] were held hostage by a combination of greed, arrogance, and fear. The emotional distance between Parker and others was as large as the vacuum of deep space. Even after plastic surgery, the world always hunted him, found him, and tried to destroy him.

Last November I was in New York to attend the National Book Foundation Awards as a guest of legendary publisher Barney Rossett. I have posted on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/user/cgmooredotcom a couple of short videos.

One video was taken at the table headed by Barney on the night of the awards. It ends with a toast to Barney. The second video has Barney talking about his life as we sat in his loft off Union Square in lower Manhattan. The founder of Grove Press, Barney Rossett has had a distinguished and often controversial career. His love of the outsider’s voice and point of view allowed American readers to widen and deepen their knowledge of the outliers world. Without Barney Rossett and Grove Press, the world would be grayer, less interesting and textured.

My publisher Grove/Atlantic has released (6th January 2009) the trade paperback edition of The Risk of Infidelity Index.

It is available through Amazon,  Barnes & Noble, and Borders.

The online websites still show the previous hardback edition cover. That should be changed to the actual cover soon.

This year has brought many things, good and bad. I had books published in New York and London, and a film option deal for a crime fiction series, and foreign rights deals. In November I was in New York City to attend the National Book Foundation Awards where my friend Barney Rossett received a lifetime achievement award. It was a time to reflect, look back at the publishing world that Barney and others like him created in the 1950s and think about what is left of that world in 2008. The transformation has been beyond what anyone would have imagined.

 

I also had a chance to meet my publisher, editor, head of publicity and foreign rights at Grove/Atlantic while in New York. As one of the last independent publishers in New York, Grove/Atlantic continues Barney Rossett’s tradition of giving voice to the outsider, of publishing books that are literary, books that are about the larger world. Next Autumn Grove/Atlantic will bring out Paying Back Jack.
