For Immediate Release
James Crumley's “The Last Good Kiss” will be the subject of the next Monday Night Fiction discussion group, starting at 7 p.m. Monday, March 6, in the Schreiner Outfitters bookstore at the Floyd and Kathleen Cailloux Campus Activity Center.
Bill Muse, vice president for administration and finance, will lead the discussion, which is free and open to the public.
The Last Good Kiss follows C.W. Sughrue, an alcoholic ex-army officer turned private investigator, who is hired to track down a derelict author. That accomplished, he ends up on the trail of a girl missing for a decade in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury.
Crumley (1939-2008) was the author of violent, hardboiled crime thrillers and several volumes of short stories and essays. The Last Good Kiss has been described as one of the most influential crime novels of the past 50 years.
The next and final Monday Night Fiction will be April 3, when Dr. Claudia Sullivan, professor of theater and communication, will lead a session on Ann Beattie's “The State We're In.”
