Summer Reading, Summer Lists XV

Writing in “Library Babel Fish,” her occasional column for Inside Higher Education on July 20th (today!) Librarian par excellence Barbara Fister describes her interest in crime fiction.  It’s a lovely short piece on a reader’s life, a taste inherited from her mother that has propelled her through the labyrinthian libraries of crime writing, of police procedurals.  She provides a short list of titles that are on her mind now:

  • The Simple Art of Murder by Raymond Chandler
  • Lockdown by Laurie King
  • The Dry by Jane Harper
  • Bluebird Bluebird by Attica Locke

Two of the three titles not the the SLU Libraries are available through the Canton Free Library, and even the illusive Bluebird Bluebird can be tracked down through Interlibrary Loan.  Happy reading!
