"After his conversion to Communism, Christopher St. John Sprigg
referred to his detective fiction as 'trash' that diverted him
from that which he now saw as his true work, heavy tomes of
earnest Marxist philosophy, like 'Illusion and Reality' and
'Romance and Realism'."
- Curt Evans, 'The Passing Tramp'
