Virginia Hill

Hey remember when I read two books that were illustrated, for the skimpiest of reasons, with oil paintings of Schoenberg? My, my! Those were heady times for everyone. Strange coincidences abounded, and we were sore afraid. So anyway, after I finished QUEENPIN I happened to read ANSWERED PRAYERS by Truman Capote. And in both books, characters relate anecdotes about legendary gangster moll Virginia Hill (who was from Alabama, by the way). So. That's crazy! Books are weird!
