I drive. That's what I do. All I do.''Much later, as he sat with his back against an inside wall of a Motel 6 just north of Phoenix, watching the pool of blood lap toward him, Driver would wonder whether he had made a terrible mistake. Later still, of course, there'd be no doubt. But for now Driver is, as they say, in the moment. And the moment includes this blood lapping toward him, the pressure of dawn's late light at windows and door, traffic sounds from the interstate nearby, the sound of someone weeping in the next room....'Thus begins Drive, by James Sallis. Set mostly in Arizona and LA, the story is, according to Sallis, '...about a guy who does stunt driving for movies by day and drives for criminals at night. In classic noir fashion, he is double-crossed and, though before he has never participated in the violence ('I drive. That's all.'), he goes after the ones who double-crossed and tried to kill him.'NOW A MAJOR FILM STARRING RYAN GOSLING AND CAREY MULLIGAN which won Best Director (Nicolas Winding Refn) at the Cannes Film Festival'Sallis creates vivid images in very few words and his taut, pared-down prose is distinctive and powerful.
