City of Glass As a result of a strange phone call in the middle of the night, Quinn, a writer of detective stories, becomes enmeshed in a case more puzzling than any he might have written. Ghosts Blue, a student of Brown, has been hired by White to spy on Black. From a window of a rented room on Orange Street, Blue keeps watch on his subject, who is across the street, staring out of his window. The Locked Room Fanshawe has disappeared, leaving behind his wife and baby and a cache of extraordinary novels, plays, and poems. What happened to him--and why is the narrator, Fanshawe's boyhood friend, lured obsessively into his life?

2.0 New York Trilogy
Kind of 'meh', or perhaps I just didn't really understand what the point was. Alright, I get it, the three novellas echo each other, and all that, but in the end, things tend to run into circles, and the answers we're given aren't all that satisfactory.I think part of my frustration with this book a...
