Re: Orrie Hitt
I started Hitt’s Warped Woman (Novel Books, 1962) and can’t put it down. In fact I have altered my plans today so I can kick back and fnish the damn thing.
That’s how **&%#$!@ good it is…autobiograophical in certain ways (the narrator lives in a small upper NY state town and makes his living writing tawdry paperback novels), it makes me wonder how much Hitt influenced Charles Bukowski. I know Bukowski was influenced greatly by John Fante, but I see shades of future Bukowski in Warped Woman.
For now, some Orrie Hitt biograophy over here.
