Clearly not the spiritual depth of Jesus Is My Homeboy.

Divine justice would be them meeting a homeboy on the subway.

Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius, my dear LBF (clearly the quote of a mediaeval Fogey). By the way, have you read some works of Barbey d'Aurevilly or La Varende? It is full of stylish dandies, catholic dissidents, femmes fatales and brooding swordsmen: I think this literature "vieille France" could appeal to a Laguna Beach Fogey

PS: of course Barbey d'Aurevilly and Jean de La Varende are not some vulgar writers of swashbuckling romance, but the finest authors among the finest of their times (as for France). I would not dare to suggest a book in THIS blog if I wasn't sure that they could be appreciated by the true connoisseur...

Marcion ~ Merci pour les suggestions, ol' chum. I'm familiar with Alfred de Vigny and Barbey d'Aurevilly. Jean de la Varende, not so much.

Barbey and Vigny! You are a Fogey of taste. I discovered Evelyn Waugh thanks to your blog: Brideshead Revisited was my first "Waughesque" experience, and I must admit that there is no such novel like this one in our literature, as far as I know.
Maybe you should try Drieu La Rochelle (and more specifically his novel Gilles): if you are into Jünger and Barbey (and as far as I can judge by the stuff that you post), you may have peculiar affinities with this powerful writer.
