Henning Mankell, a Swedish writer whose Kurt Wallander detective novels sold tens of millions of copies and were translated into 40 languages, introducing readers around the world to the genre of jaded investigators and snow-covered corpses that has become known as “Nordic noir,” died Oct. 5 in Gothenburg, Sweden. He was 67.Read full article >>

Sloane Crosley on book trailers, book clubs and her new novel, ‘The Clasp’

Sloane Crosley is best known for her quietly hilarious personal essays, collected in two best-selling books, “How Did You Get this Number” and “I Was Told There’d Be Cake.” With her newest work “The Clasp,” Crosley is venturing into new territory: fiction. The novel, inspired by Guy de Maupassant’s short story “The Necklace,” is a love-triangle-comedy-of-manners told in Crosley’s signature irreverent style.Read full article >>

‘City on Fire’ review: A vibrant, kaleidoscopic vision of ’70s New York

The phenomenal success of David Foster Wallace, Jonathan Franzen and Donna Tartt tempts us to believe that readers of literary fiction crave long novels, but that bit of magical thinking works only for long novels that succeed. After all, Bob Shacochis’s spectacular “Woman Who Lost Her Soul” clocked in at 715 pages and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, but how many people actually read it? A few months ago, our reviewer called William T. Vollmann’s 1,356-page novel, “The Dying Grass,” a brilliant masterpiece, but it never climbed onto the bestseller list.

Thank You for your welcome! I like mysteries and thrillers. I enjoy watching crime television, its interesting to see how cases are sold. And also what types of things can cause a case to go unsolved. Real stories and the entertainment shows as well. How about you?
