A Rare Triple
I can’t remember the last time I read three books in a row that I really liked:
- Robert Hutchinson: Elizabeth's Spymaster: Francis Walsingham and the Secret War That Saved England. (Precede or follow with Patricia Finney's excellent novel Firedrake's Eye for best effect. Would someone please make a movie of this?)
- Michael Chabon: The Yiddish Policeman's Union.
- Catherynne M. Valente: In the Night Garden.
Of course, this means I have a stack of technical books waiting for me; I hope at least one is as good.
