I had to keep reminding myself that Evan Hunter was a pseudonym for Ed McBain because the style and content felt so different The intersect was that Hunter McBain both write in the mystery genre Buddwing was psychological It begins with a man waking up in Central Park not knowing who he is Th action takes place in one long day with lots of flashbacks The protagonist arbitrarily calls himself Buddwing because he doesn t know his name From the moment he wakes he s in nonstop motion mostly chasing [...]
A man wakes up on a bench in Central Park He can t remember anything, not even his name, not even who he is He spends the next 24 hours on a somewhat mad cap dash about New York trying to discover someone who might know him, someone who might help him rediscover his identity Are these people actually from his past Do they have a connection with him He certainly strikes lucky with some of the women he meets, of that we are told rather too graphically Gradually some of his missing past does seem t [...]
