BORN TODAY: SPILLANE

Spillane
BORN TODAY: MICKEY SPILLANE.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO FRANK MICHAEL MORRISON SPILLANE.

9 MARCH (1918). BORN IN BROOKLYN (NY).

American author of crime novels and comics, many featuring his signature detective character, Mike Hammer. More than 225 million copies of his books have sold internationally. In 1980, Spillane was responsible for seven of the top 15 all-time best-selling fiction titles in the U.S.

È considerato uno dei padri, assieme a Dashiell Hammett e Raymond Chandler, del genere hard-boiled e acuto interprete delle necessità visionarie del suo tempo.


"Il mondo dei sogni, però, rappresenta solo una fuga dalla realtà. Non dura mai abbastanza".

 

"La gente legge libri non per arrivare a metà, ma per arrivare alla fine”.

 

"Non mi importa un accidente di leggere le recensioni".

 

"If you're a singer you lose your voice. A baseball player loses his arm. A writer gets more knowledge, and if he's good, the older he gets, the better he writes".

 

"If the public likes you, you're good. Shakespeare was a common, down-to-earth writer in his day".

 

"Those big-shot writers could never dig the fact that there are more salted peanuts consumed than caviar".

 

"I'm a commercial writer, not an 'author. Margaret Mitchell was an author. She wrote one book".

 

"Nobody reads a mystery to get to the middle. They read it to get to the end. If it's a letdown, they won't buy anymore. The first page sells that book. The last page sells your next book".
