Book of the Week: ‘Jimmy the Kid.’

Hrm. Which Donald Westlake Dortmunder books have I done, so far?

:clickity clickity clickity:

…Good God.  Ten years, and I’ve yet to do one?  Not a single Dortmunder ‘comic criminal’ novel?  This is worse than a mistake; it’s a blunder.  I’m embarrassed for myself.  You should be embarrassed for me, too.  It’s an abject failure on my part, is what it is.

OK.  Jimmy the Kid.  They made a really, really bad movie starring Gary Coleman out of it, but that’s not Donald Westlake’s fault.  All he did was cash the check.
