Into the streets where it belonged." My own novels are modern American private detective stories, a fair amount of crime . mixed with philosophy.

I have been reading a lot of classic Russian literature lately, and I notice that the authors often digress . when I began reading classical books, specially as you stated, Russian literature. I always find it intriguing to read and understand. a lot of deep thought in them sometimes. I also prefer the author to stay focused on the plot, but I. lot of reading assignments that the fiction stories involve the writers own personal philosophy. I enjoy looking at their views that. plot, it should accompany it. If done right, I actually prefer this element to be included in the literature I read. a short excerpt from my new novel. It's a modern American private eye story and my PI and his cop.
