I whipped together a quick post the other day after noticing Mean Streets buddy and Hammett biographer Nathan Ward got some mentions in Anne Diebel’s article for Paris Review titled “Dashiell Hammett’s Strange Career.”
Like I said, I gave it a casual gander, at best, and skipped over something interesting. The prolific poster Terry Zobeck just brought it to my attention.
Terry writes, “Someone sent me a link to the article before I saw it on Mean Streets. In the first sentence she quotes Hammett from the Daily Eagle interview I ‘discovered.’ And I like that she acknowledges Nathan’s book.
“Hey, we made it into the Paris Review, sort of.”
Nice to see that the “Lost Interview” is spreading around.
Contributions to the culture, that’s our game.
