Ed McBain

Ed McBain had some great lines. For example, from his classic 'The Gutter and the Grave':

"I’m a drunk. I think we’d better get that straight from the beginning. I drink because I want to drink."

"I pass for a man sometimes, but only because I once belonged to the human race."

"She was slightly smaller than her sister, but she still added up to a very big girl."

"This was a girl who was used to men, and she didn’t like them bearded and rumpled. She made me feel as if I should run to take a bath. I didn’t."
