The Dame, Herself: Agatha ChristieMonday, Feb 25, 2013
March is Women’s Mystery Month. To celebrate, I wrote this piece for Open Road Media: God knows my admiration for Agatha Christie is not based on her character development. Her recurring protagonists, Jane Marple, Tommy and Tuppence Beresford. Hercule Poirot, et al, are only slightly less thin than the paper they’re written on. And I despise her bias. Frankly, I’d like to punch her in the snoot for the offhand anti-Semitism and racism she displayed, especially in her earlier books.
E-books and meThursday, Dec 20, 2012
My first downloads on my new Sony Reader (back in the dawn of e-civilization) were the freebies: Hamlet, the US Constitution, Pride and Prejudice, Huckleberry Finn, Leaves of Grass. Then I felt guilty about slighting the entire non-English-speaking world, so I added a big, fat Dostoyevsky: the Brothers or C & P; I forget which. There was no wireless then, so I ran the cable from my computer to the Reader and watched the progress of the counterclockwise-racing icon.
