of the pen and a smart aleck finance clerk named Devers Holed up with family in a scrappy litt. anyone out there like magic well i do and i m gonna do a magic trick watch how i turn david s examples of why stark is a bad writer from his review of the score into proof that stark is a very good writer here s davey boy Richard Stark at least in The Score is not really what I would call a very good writer And Richard Stark s editor is not what I would call a very good editor Witness this passageThe prowl car was a Ford two years old painted light green and white with Police written in large letters on the doors and hood and trunk The dashboard lights were green and there was a small red dot of light like a ruby on the radioI don t know about you but I am kind of disappointed that Stark didn t tell us whether the upholstery was contrast stitched or whether the heater vents were set to floor or bi level Before you start second guessing none of the details Stark reports RE the police car is relevant to anything in the book For instance the small red dot of light does not later blind a would be assassin or some other comparable hijinks These used car ads are just written up by Stark inserted into the text and never referred to againit s not uncommon for the author s voice to mirror the tone or worldview of its protagonist consider philip roth s furious diatribes or coetzee s spare sterile prose same with stark his lead character is a sociopath a man only out for himself a man with no patience for anything not directly related to the job a man who cares about any minute detail related to said job than anything normal people would consider of significantly greater import one is immediately struck when reading stark at how lightly he treats murder a character we ve followed for 200 pgs is shot and it ll read something like this Two shots were fired at Smith It was the last thing he ever saw stark never describes deathmurder in than a single banal sentence never any blood and guts never any falling or flailing about the room never any existential uandaries nothing zilch yet he does describe police cars and motel rooms and certain articles of clothing as david illustrates in excessive detail why because as davey boy would have us believe he s a bad writer because he has a bad editor nope the answer is simple because only things which are directly related to the job matter to parker and by extension to the narrator offing a cop or a double crosser is the dramatic and moral euivalent of choosing the right sack to stuff money in or picking out the right getaway car and just as once that car s function has been fulfilled it is forgotten once a man walks away andor dies it s as if he s never existed the police car through the eyes of a criminal sociopath about to do a job is a key object in his moral universe certainly than the passage from life to death of a being with less significance than a housefly and it s an effective strategy adopting the protagonist s sociopathic temperament obsessive compulsive habits into a minimalist OCD sociopathic authorial voice and prose style creates an unsettling tension tantamount to linking audience POV with a bad guy in a movie in psycho hitchcock delighted in killing off marian crane janet leigh at the mid point in that he knew the audience must latch on to the closest thing it had norman bates similarly stark s gotta take a perverse pleasure in forcing us not only to watch stark in action but to see the world through his eyes which provides a nice transition to david s other complaint There is really no psychological depth in this book whatsoever People merely do things and say thingsi agree and it s incredibly effective parker and by extension stark ain t too interested in human psychology in the traditionally literary sense that is the picking up and dropping of important clues and hints to signify this trait or that pathology or this action etc both writer and his protagonist are keen observers but see things solely through the lens of how does this affect the job check it Psychology Today Do you have any formal interest in psychologyWerner Herzog I loathe psychology as one of the major faults of our civilization nowadays There s something not right about this amount of introspection I can only give you a metaphor When you move into an apartment you cannot start to illuminate every last corner with neon light If there are no dark corners or hidden niches your house becomes uninhabitable Human beings who are trying to self reflect and explore their innermost being to the last corner become uninhabitable peopleherzog and stark employ similar tools for a common purpose rather than attempt to create narrative works to dig deep at what exactly makes people tick they prefer to show human behavior in extreme conditions and leave it to the readerviewer to tease out what she may we dig thisas does stark the parker series is peppered with characters much like david frustrated with parker s seeming lack of depth from the green eagle score Everyone has emotions We all have them you me everyone Even this man Parker Perhaps he has them bottled up than most people that s allShe shook her head I can t imagine him ever feeling emotions I can t imagine him crying Or even laughing Seems to me you ve turned this man into some sort of myth figure something bigger than life ultimately stark writes process novels much as bresson creates process films they work toward different ends of course bresson strives for a kind of spiritual transcendence through process while stark s goals are significantly earthbound but they re the same in many respects foremost being that they both find a kind of powerfully sacred uality to process and it s like crack for certain readers when stark writes the following of parker The part of him that took pleasure in professionalism in craft was already half involved in this project anxious to find out the rest of the detailshe could just as easily be writing about his readers all of us who ve blasted through a good chunk of this series are as obsessed with the craft of thievery as is parker we find it even interesting than the money the tough guys the dames the criminal argot the double crossings etc aightso there davey boy ball s in your court
