It was the little things about the book that bothered me. Why would someone like Kanfer, who's written a number of movie star bios, spell Joel McCrea's name wrong? Doesn't he know who McCrea is?
Why does he consistently call The Maltese Falcon a "novella." Hasn't he ever seen a copy?
Perhaps you think I'm being picky because Kanfer doesn't mention We'll Always Have Murder in his bibliography in the "novels featuring or about Humphrey Bogart" section. You could be right.
