Comment on How to Feel Smarter in 45 Minutes (Or, A Conversation with Laura Lippman) by Former Secretary /2010/09/29/how-to-feel-smarter-in-45-minutes-or-a-conversation-with-laura-lippman/comment-page-1/#comment-6151 Former Secretary Thu, 30 Sep 2010 20:27:51 +0000 /?p=2026#comment-6151 The last 3 posts have been wonderful reading. I'm sure your interview with Ms. Lippman was extraordinary too. I have always loved Agatha Christie and Poirot but most of all the Grisham writings. I will be out of town on Oct. 9th so unfortunately I will not be able to meet Ms. Lippman or hear her reading. Enjoy! The last 3 posts have been wonderful reading.

Wonderful to know Ms. Lippman is as intelligent in real life, as she is as a writer. Also love the fact that she likes Ellen Gilchrist. One of my absolute favourite authors. I grew up with Ms. Gilchrist's fine skill to walk the fine line between southern sophistication and a perverse need to indulge in all that is irreverent. Great interview.

Author John D. MacDonald died about 2 years after the last McGee book was published in 1984 so there's a definite end in the series. Block, luckily, is still alive and writing periodically releasing Scudder tales, albeit with an older, mellower and wiser protagonist. I'm going to have a look at Ms. Lippman's picks, starting with Kate Atkinson.

Ann Rule, and Grisham are a couple of writers I've enjoyed the read with... i remember growing up my mom always had a mystery book on the lamp table and in the evening would read, read, read. She love Agatha Christie and especially Poirot. I think I need to check out the Maisie Dobbs series as the commenter piqued my interest there! j Even the title gives me chills!

Cool! I'm adding this to my list to read. I'm answering the question anyway (don't consider me since I don't live in NOLA!). Love the Myron Bolitar series by Harlan Coben! I goes through phases where I'll read one author's books in a matter of a few months. I will always be a fan of old school Grishman and also really enjoyed all of Robert Ludum's books. Whoa! Cool!

Comment on Laura Lippman: A NOLA Tale of Intrigue by Justine /2010/09/25/laura-lippman-a-nola-tale/comment-page-1/#comment-6132 Justine Mon, 27 Sep 2010 19:53:38 +0000 /?p=1952#comment-6132 Ok, I really shouldn't win this. But, just in case you're looking for a charity case....here it is. I choose mystery whenever I can, though I opt for the lighter, funnier and often culturally revealing words of Tony Hillerman and Carl Hiassen this sounds like a perfect combo of mystery, suspense and local flair. Right now, however, I am steeping myself up to my ears and beyond in New Orleans literature (am an undergrad English major, and way older than the other freshmen) and therein lies the rub! Though I plan to go to the book reading, I will not have this read before then. Thanks for the great write up and the contest nonetheless. Ok, I really shouldn’t win this.
