Has it really been over a week since my last post? Wow. Time flies when you’ve got a couple buckets of snot clogging your sinuses, a toddler with a double ear infection, and a work load that just won’t quit. Please accept my humble apologies for the extended absence.
The toddler and I are both better now (though Mommy has taken up the banner of the creeping crud in our stead), and work has slowed down from its usual breakneck pace. Therefore you can expect more book reviews to be coming down the pike pretty soon here. I’ve got quite a backlog building up.
My most recent effort at literary philosophizing, however, will not be found around here. For that you’ll have to meander over to The Man of la Book blog. The fellow who runs it, Zohar, was nice enough to offer me a guest review on his site. As you might imagine, I jumped on the opportunity like a hobo on a ham sandwich. He’s a real stand-up guy, that Zohar.
The book is Catch the Gold Ring by John Stephen Strange, a mystery novel originally published in 1955 which tells the story of a former French Resistance fighter and the search for his brother’s betrayer seven years after the liberation of
from Nazi occupation. Check it out here, and while you’re there give the rest of The Man of la Book a look-see, too. There’s plenty of good stuff to be had. France
