It's historical, but not in the same way as my other books because it takes place in the 1980s rather than the 1780s. It's about a group of dysfunctional college students thrown together in a rooming house run by a very strange "house master," who goes missing. The characters are made up of bits and pieces of my friends from college, with the exception of the narrator, who is mostly me. Sad to say, the dysfunctional part is pretty autobiographical.(less)

Shortly after we arrived at the beach, my daughter and I headed straight for the boardwalk. And I started to wonder why our society puts collections of shops, restaurants and amusements on a length of boards where the ocean meets the sand. We don’t put boardwalks around resort lakes. You won’t find a boardwalk at the Grand Canyon. But they seem to be a requirement in beach towns. Why?Kate Dolan writes about the history of beach boardwalks

I bought this book some time ago and when I picked it up again recently, I cringed. The text was first published in 1922 and so much research has been conducted since then that this book had to be hopelessly out of date. However, when I delved into i ...more

“Impossible as it seemed, many of these older ladies, who never stirred from the house past sunset, had either not heard the tales of his behavior two nights ago or had not believed them.
The ones who did obviously has enough manners, or at least enough sense, to keep quiet in the presence of his mother. Had anyone said anything outright, his mother would probably have no qualms about asking the offender to choose a weapon and name her second.”

“Edmund dashed over to the nearest window. "I'll jump off this ship!" he announced. But the window wouldn't open without more of a struggle than he had time to offer. So he made his exit through the more convenient, albeit less dramatic, doorway with Adrington and Mountdale in close pursuit.”
