On the nightstand
I have been on an (unintentional) Sherlock Holmes jag.
I am reading the new Caleb Carr book, The Italian Secretary, which is a further adventure. It is very fun so far, has supernatural elements. I recently finished "A Slight Trick of the Mind" by Mitch Cullen which was another look at Holmes, finding him at age 93 in post nuclear bombed Japan, and also revisiting an earlier mystery from the late 1800s. I listened to it while hiking in the mornings after dropping the kids at school. My walks aren't the same since I finished it.
Also on my nightstand is the new Julian Barnes, Arthur & George, which is about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I wasn't as captivated as I had hoped so am reading the Caleb Carr first - it's a bit disturbing because it's about racial harassment (Doyle helps the victim)
