George V. Higgins.

For those of us who may have missed the actual exhibit earlier in the year, there's now an interesting online retrospective of the multifaceted career of the late author, journalist, attorney, and ardent Red Sox fan George V. Higgins, most celebrated for The Friends of Eddie Coyle (1972; film 1973). It's available via the University of South Carolina Libraries, which now holds his papers.

"...people who are violent and unpredictable and who break codes and laws and all sorts of solemn promises, are more interesting than the people who behave themselves." -- George V. Higgins (1993)
