step-by-stepLawrence Block, one of our greatest mystery writers, visits me to talk about his memoir, “Step By Step.” During the course of our interview in which Larry talks about his life of race-walking and having travelled to some 140 countries, he drops a startling revelation. He may have written his last novel. Is this true? I ask Larry, to which he responds that Matthew Scudder, Bernie Rhodenbar, and Keller his three novelist heroes may have reached a certain point of equilibrium where Larry himself could just walk away and be happy never writing another novel. Will he do it? Tune in and find out.

Lawrence Block Interview

January 25th, 2009 by Lewis Frumkes

 

one-night-stands-and-lost-weekendsLarry Block was named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America in 1993, but readers everywhere already knew this. Stuart Woods once told me he learned much of what he knows from Larry Block. Larry has written so many books that it is difficult to keep up with them: the Bernie Rhodenbarr series; the Matthew Scudder series: The Evan Tanner series; Chip Harrison books, Keller books, Hitman books, and so on and so on. Larry is just terrific as a writer and as a friend, and I might add funny to boot. Here he talks about a volume of his early stories in which you can already see the magic of his pen. Fun interview.
