The Getaway Car synopsis
Over the course of fifty years, DonaldWestlake has published nearly one hundred books, including one series - but one-time - for a long time, starring the powerful Parker and the dumber John Dontmund. In the six years following his death, Weslak's reputation increased only as admirers continued to marvel at his rigorously constructed conspiracies, meaningless, anxious, and even disturbing apprehension of human behavior.
With The Getaway Car, we get our first profile on the other side of Westlake Author: What he did when he was not busy making things. And it's wonderful.
The development of previously published books, many unprecedented articles, and unpublished material found in Westlake's work files, provide a clear picture of the man behind the books - including his background His experience and his thoughts on his own work from his peers, mentors and influences. The book opens with fragments (and funny) of unpublished autobiography, and continues to present a long history of private fiction, a conversation between the names of Westlake pens, letters to friends and colleagues, interviews, appreciation of fellow writers, and much more.
There is even a recipe for Salmuth no Dortmund. really.
The Getaway is designed with the introduction of long-time friend Lauris Block from Westlake and serves as the cornerstone for a career and a great opportunity to reappear in a masterful voice and craft.
