Allan Guthrie: Family guy
For now, a couple of thoughts on the Guthrie:
1) The man could write a mean sitcom or screwball comedy if he set his mind to it. I'd like to see him write a script for The New My Three Sons.
2) Page 157 contains the funniest line I have read about that staple of 21st-century crime writing, the changing urban landscape.
3) That line is not as funny as two on Page 160:
"Not that they were in a hurry, but still. Effie had a new respect for butchers."and
"They'd all sat around drinking. Took awkward sips and smiled sadly at each other. Dad kept saying, `I can't believe he's dead,' till Effie told him to shut up."© Peter Rozovsky 2009
