Dashiell Hammett

| Comments:
I had never heard of Dashiell Hammett before today. Sure his works are influential, but I think they're mostly influential to you.
I'm dumfounded. Would it help if I told you that his life companion was Lillian Hellman? The Maltese Falcon is a nearly perfect book, and The Thin Man is just about the only novel I can think of that's about a happy marriage.
This is good - some more controversial entries today! Question: Will there be further opportunities to nominate people, perhaps next year? There are several I'm afraid we're going to miss.
