Letter to the Editor at the New Yorker

Dear editor:

Tell Woody Allen that I think his story “Pinchuck's Law” in the Oct. 2nd issue was one of his cleverest. It was also some of the funniest writing in the postmodern-noir genre, along with his debt to it in Match Point & his last movie. However, I think that genre finally ended when Jim Jarmusch mourned its expiration at the end of Broken Flowers. Maybe it's time to move on.
