One of mah bookclubs will soon be chosin' the 11 selections fer our 2013-2014 season.
I'se solicitin' yore help. Each year we try to read one biography, one memoir, one classic, an' one popular non-fiction current event title. The remaining seven can be from any genre.
In the past we's had real good discussions wif' the literary mystery -- an' Aunty is hopin' some of y'all will have a suggestion. A literary mystery can double as a classic, like an Agatha Christie or Sherlock Holmes, but we tend to keep spy thrillers separate--an' the group is a huge fan of Alan Furst fer spy works.
IN past years we's chewed through Smilla's Sense of Snow, The Historian (!), the police procedure wowing Presumed Innocent, and a couple of the Stieg Larsson titles ( The Girl with...), a fictional account of a true an' great historical mystery, Daughter of Time about whether Richard III was akshully a murderous uncle, a Medieval murder tale wif' a funtastic herbalist/ detective, The Virgin in the Ice, The Snowman ( scary, scary Jo Nesbo ). (We avoided Gone Girl, 'cause, Amazin' Amy gives us all the pip, an' we doan think Flynn is literary, more on the pop side of the sheet--doan ya think?).
I'se tempted to suggest The Incidence of the Fingerpost, but it is a hefty tome. I 'spect I will read it on mah own, anyhoo.
What about all y'all? Has ya read a good mystery recently?
