Bill Kristol Remembers Donald Westlake

William Kristol, of the Weekly Standard and Fox News’ “Special Report,” has been promoting Donald Westlake at every opportunity for ages.  I seem to remember that his recommended reading lists always included “anything by Donald Westlake,” and he told the L.A. Times that Westlake should receive the Nobel Prize for literature:

Enough with honoring self-consciously solemn, angst-ridden and pseudo-deep chroniclers of the human condition. Westlake is smart, clever and witty–a prolific craftsman–and deep. But do the Nobel judges have a sense of humor? I doubt it

Here is Kristol’s tribute.  It’s a good one.
