Dork Art: Grofield Reprints
Since the University of Chicago Press has been having so much success with Richard Stark's Parker series they've decided to publish Stark's Alan Grofield novels as well. Grofield made his first appearence in the Parker book, The Score and went on to guest star in a few others. I've never read these solo books, but my understanding is they lack the bitter edge of the brilliant Parker series. I'm still working my way through the Parkers, I'm on The Black Ice Score but haven't picked it up in quite a while. Don't want to speed through them--gotta make them last.
Anyway, Chicago Press hired designer David Drummond to continue his good work with the Grofield covers. I dig em. What ya think?
