More Mean Streets -

Much Awaited: Philip Marlowe's new mystery adventure, The Black-Eyed Blonde, penned by John Banville writing as Benjamin Black has made its publishing debut.

The pressure of many people's expectations must be a heavy weight on Banville, but I'm guessing there's also some interest in making a movie out of it, which prompts the burning question of who should be cast as the new
Philip Marlowe.
