I enjoyed Last Call enough that I'm re-reading Expiration Date by Tim Powers.

I just love old pulp novels and there's an abundance of places to find them in the Chicago area if you know where to look.

However, after reading that pretty good Erle Stanley Gardner novel, I'm reading something a bit more contemporary:

It's enjoyable, but nothing groundbreaking. I hear his latest novel (The Racketeer) is actually quite good though. I still read Grisham because The Firm is the first book that I read for pleasure when it came out and is what got me into reading when I was younger. Feel like I kind of owe it to the guy.
