In at the Death - Francis Duncan

always fun to meet a new Detective. well, new to me, but the book is from 1952. I think of "in at the death" as a bullfighting term--don't quote me on that--but it'll be interesting to see how it applies murder off the "cobbled streets" of Bridgton.

Nocturnal Animals: Previously published as Tony and Susan - Austin Wright

every time I catch myself thinking that the author has a bizarre writing style, I have to back up and correct myself: "nooOOooo...the author has given Edward a bizarre writing style. 'novel within a novel', remember!".

Vigilante by Marv Wolfman Vol. 1 - Marv Wolfman

obviously this is a re-read for me...and how wonderful it is to revisit the first 11 issues of Vigilante without digging out the original comics I have stashed away! Vig got graphic-noveled; I'm still stunned that they bothered, but hopefully he'll find a new audience. I'm the old audience, going back yet again. this first chapter in the career of Vigilante is about as normal as things ever were. so hopefully there'll be more Volumes, for when things really get out of control.

Nocturnal Animals: Previously published as Tony and Susan - Austin Wright

the structure of this novel has me wondering how they dealt with the material when they made the film version. maybe I'll have to see it. hm. as far as what the book offers, it's a "novel within a novel" approach, and as a reader fully hooked, I congratulate the author on making me feel so much for Tony and his family, even though I know they are a fiction within a fiction. then there's Susan--what's her deal? and why has Edward shoved his creepy book into her life? I'm really enjoying the layers...great read so far.

Nocturnal Animals: Previously published as Tony and Susan - Austin Wright

I'm going to meet a new Spider-Man first(!), and then this. I knew this book had undergone a title change when it got turned into a movie, but I did not know the book was quite as old as it is. been around a while.
