James Lee Burke –
Turning the Lowly Mystery Novel Into An Art Form

“… she was pretty in an unusual way, innocent in the way that people at the very bottom of our society can be innocent when they have nothing more to lose and hence are not driven by ambition and the guile that often attends it.”

“Like youth, fame and adulation are not surrendered, they’re taken away from you.”

” ‘Going up or coming down, it’s only rock and roll,” I said.  But we both knew better.”

James Lee Burke  Swan Peak (Pocket Books 2008)
