From George Bush to Donald Trump

Murder & Mayhem on The Main Street of America. This is the title for the next book, number nineteen.

As I re-read Amanda Coplin’s The Orcharist (2012), I’m reminded–as I always am when I read a great book a second or third time–of the treasures the author’s words present that might be overlooked the first time through by reader’s focus on the plot.
