Read in November, 2011

Walked to the library 40 weeks pregnant to unsuccessfully induce labor. When I couldn't find any of the humor books I'd been looking for, I tracked down this African-American author of Sam-Spade-type mysteries. There's a whole series of novels around the detective Easy Rawlins in post WWII LA, and he's got such a distinctive voice you can hear it in your head as you read. The genre is sort of film noir meets The Wire. A lot of sordid goings-on in the book, so may not be for the squeamish. We added the Denzel Washington movie adaptation to our Netflix queue.
