Agatha Christie

The Lady Elizabeth book by Alison Weir

The Lady Elizabeth

The Lady Elizabeth is the second book by Alison Weir and she shows a knack for balancing dramatisation with detail.
Mary Tudor, Bloody Mary

Mary Tudor: Courageous Queen Or Bloody Mary?

I'll start this review by saying that I highly recommend Mary Tudor: Courageous Queen or Bloody Mary? by Jane Buchanan.
Alan Bennett

Alan Bennett's The Uncommon Reader is a clever turn of the ages-old idea that if you want to keep your subjects in line, keep them in the dark.

A Very Bookish Holiday

I alluded to bookish doings abroad in my last post ... the London trip was amazing, at least from this bibliophile's point of view
Neil Labute

In Fat Pig and This Is How It Goes, LaBute gives voice to all those ugly things that propel the human tendency toward selfishness and approval-seeking.
84 Charing Cross Rd

Guillermo Martinez

The Oxford Murders

In The Oxford Murders, an unnamed narrator from Buenos Aires wins a scholarship to study algebraic topology at Oxford.
Lousie Welsh

The Bullet Trick, Louise Welsh

What I like best about Welsh is her economy with words, which has a way of powering along the plot. She also has a knack for letting Scottish dialect set the mood.
