I realized I haven’t done my BEA recap so for the next few weeks I’ll post my pics of books and authors I met.
Here I am with the smart Tom Reiss. I read The Black Count back in the fall as part of the From Left to Write online book club. The book is about Alexandre Dumas, pere, as they say. The father of the man who wrote The Three Musketeers. To be sure, AD had his own very exciting life and was also a writer. Here’s my review.
I probably frightened Mr Reiss to death because I told him that as a trained librarian, I am forced to check the references of the books I read. I was glad to tell him that his references checked out. He screamed and ran away from me!
Not really. But he was a super smart guy and if his people are listening right now, I would LOVE to review The Orientalist. (call me)
