Yep, I'm wking on it. Got a couple more to add. My obgyn's sister in law, Janimy Gordon/Lord of Misrule, just won the nat'l bk award and last nt she was at the local bkstore, Bk Passages, to give a talk sooo of course I had to go w/my neighbor Anita and of course buy the bk which I may give to a friend in LA who is turning 60 and owns/raises/races throughbred's. The question is, however, does she read? To be continued - mystery to be solved by asking Dorothy Sall.
Georgia, I'm impressed by McCarry's writing in "Christopher's Ghosts". I was a little put out when I first started reading it, because I thought it was a spy thriller, and the 1st part doesn't have the action I expected. I didn't give up on it because I was drawn into the characters and the horror of their situation. The 2nd part is more like a traditional spy thriller, which Christopher sneaking around East Berlin. It is a haunting book. If you liked this, you might like Alan Furst's novel "The Foreign Correspondent."
