Nugget #71 -- Monkey Wrenches and Jazz Rhythm


For my money, I prefer the monkey wrench a femme fatale 
brings into the world of the crime story. She’s the literary 
change in time signature to shift the jazz of the tale from 
Benny Goodman to Miles Davis. Either one is good, and 
really good, but one has that something special that 
 makes it a lot spicier to the ears.
