“Remember how I used to read to you?”
“Uh huh. Since then, I’ve learned to read by myself.”
—From the Nicholas Ray’s noir classic, In a Lonely Place, staring Humphrey Bogart and Gloria Grahame and based on the novel by Dorothy B. Hughes, who was also the author of The Expendable Man. Both books have a twist, half the fun is seeing if you can pick it up early.
