Muggle, I ordered The Tin Roof Blow Down, but I don't see any new Robicheaux listed on Amazon.

 

And yeah, I'd read about the movie sometime, and boy, wouldn't Tommy Lee Jones be perfect for Dave? :blush:

I mislead you. the new book which will be out in July IS The Tin Roof Blow Down. I expect it to be a great book.

It is no secret that one of my favorite authors is James Lee Burke. I recently made a post on JLB's book forum and received a reply by JLB. :

I have finished reading both Jesus Out To Sea and Tin Roof Blowdown. My expectations were high for both books and I was not dissapointed, excellent reading. My only problem was with Tin Roof Blowdown, I was furious with what happened in N.O. during hurricane Katrina and the lack of response by our Government. After reading Tin Roof I was even more upset. Thank you JLB for giving us great writing.

 

Jesus Out To Sea was also great reading. I thoroughly enjoyed all the stories and especially the Johnny Ace one. I could relate very well to it and one of my favorite songs is still, to this day, Pledging My Love.

Thanks, Muggle and Panjandrum for the kind words. "Johnny Ace" is one of my favorite stories in the collection as well. I hope one day to see it adapted for the screen.

 

Best,

 

Jim

I guess that y'all know that they are going to make a movie of JLB's book " In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead". Tommy Lee Jones I believe will be one of the stars and i hope they get Robert DuVall as another.

Muggle, I finally watched In the Electric Mist the other day, downloaded and rented it from Amazon, it was dynamite. Have you seen it?

John Goodman plays Baby Feet. heh, really good. :)

Wasn't John Goodman great as Baby Feet? I had to almost laugh at him. One review I read said he over acted the part, but I don't think so, he was right on target.

 

Re Amazon rentals, yes, they have a player they call the Unbox, you download that for free, then you can download movies. Usually very reasonable, and it will stay on your computer for a specified time, up to 30 days, but once you start it, it'll disappear in anything from one to three days. I've used it 4 or 5 times so far, and have been satisfied.
