    My Flesh Is Sweet is dripping with pulpy goodness It reminds me a bit of Richard Stark s The Damsel as it takes the reader on a harrowing flight through Mexico, although this book was written decades earlier The main character is a pulp writer who is in Mexico to write because rents are cheaper and stumbles across a little brunette turista who had an accident with a Mexican General, who offers to settle up the affair over drinks at her hotel room Connors didn t blame him for looking She My Flesh Is Sweet is dripping with pulpy goodness It reminds me a bit of Richard Stark s The Damsel as it takes the reader on a harrowing flight through Mexico, although this book was written decades earlier The main character is a pulp writer who is in Mexico to write because rents are cheaper and stumbles across a little brunette turista who had an accident with a Mexican General, who offers to settle up the affair over drinks at her hotel room Connors didn t blame him for looking She was a little honey dressed in white slacks so sheer the rolled hem of her scanties showed, and a V necked bolero to match that left her mid riff bare One thing leads to another and after gunshots and bodies falling, Connors and Eleana are in full flight across the entire country of Mexico with every member of law enforcement out to get them The story is top notch and truly cements Keene as a pulp writer The interactions between these two ring true and the heat flowing between them is red hot

    About a third of the way into this novel our detective writer protagonist Ad Connors is holed up in a Mexican hotel and needs money to get back across the border before the Mexican police arrest or kill him He calls his agent in New York and asks him to wire 50, a loan against future sales The agent agrees but tells Ad to crank out a couple of manuscripts So Ad snags a typewriter from a pawn shop, buys some paper, and heads back to the hotel room to start writing The first night he cranks o About a third of the way into this novel our detective writer protagonist Ad Connors is holed up in a Mexican hotel and needs money to get back across the border before the Mexican police arrest or kill him He calls his agent in New York and asks him to wire 50, a loan against future sales The agent agrees but tells Ad to crank out a couple of manuscripts So Ad snags a typewriter from a pawn shop, buys some paper, and heads back to the hotel room to start writing The first night he cranks out a 15,000 word potboiler Kill me, Ma ana but hasdifficulty with the second novelette, It took him two nights, a day, and part of a third morning to get it down on paper This second manuscript A Corpse For the Bride, which he thinks less of, actually leads to a big sale But that is getting ahead of the story The significance of these two manuscripts Ad cranks out to raise money to escape Mexico is that they essential mirror the structure of this novel.The first half of My Flesh Is Sweet is pure potboiler Ad witnesses a car crash and then rescues the driver, American school teacher Eleana, from the lecherous general whose car she crashed into, but in the process the general is shot and Ad thinks he s killed him So Ad and Eleana are on the run trying to get back to Texas and it is fast paced and full of disguises and close calls There is, however, the business of what she was doing in Mexico in the first place, and that is theinvolved plot that takes up the second half of the novel This second half story isa mystery and a love story,complex andfulfilling Plenty of action still, but story bound rather than the chase sequence of the first half.Good fun read with the added kick that you can see a writer at work who was quite aware of his genre s conventions and also how to play with them

    Corn fresh from the cob At least that s what Ad Connors, the pulp writing hero of this enjoyably ridiculous noir calls one of his own stories Still, this was fast paced, stylish, and if you re so inclined it ll keep you guessing, I had my fingers crossed for Ad and Eleana She was a little honey or was Mexico just a tequila and homicide fuelled mistake Isn t it always I also loved the story about the time the side wall of Celeste s circus tent collapsed before she d finished dressing Corn fresh from the cob At least that s what Ad Connors, the pulp writing hero of this enjoyably ridiculous noir calls one of his own stories Still, this was fast paced, stylish, and if you re so inclined it ll keep you guessing, I had my fingers crossed for Ad and Eleana She was a little honey or was Mexico just a tequila and homicide fuelled mistake Isn t it always I also loved the story about the time the side wall of Celeste s circus tent collapsed before she d finished dressing Being a woman, it pleased her I like Day Keene because he s quite self mocking, he knows the limitations of the genre but he always does a stellar job, you feel like you re in safe hands but you re also kind of in on the joke As always, the last few pages felt like they were written five minutes before he had to submit the thing, but give the man a break, he had to pay his rent
