  1. Even given that I have read the lists from time to time over the years, I didn't remember that any of them, other than THE LONG GOODBYE, had won (and now that you mention it, that Levin had won best first)...despite having also read DON'T CRY FOR ME and THE FABULOUS CLIPJOINT. I have to wonder if I'd agree that Highsmith wasn't robbed.
