Content note: death, suicide, gunshot.
For the last Page One of 2013, Charles Adrian serves up a dish of murder. Expect classic writers alongside a couple of relative whippersnappers. Happy holidays, everybody!
George Lewkowicz, who is mentioned, is featured in Page One 60.
Charles Adrian subsequently started to read The Leper Of Saint George by Ellis Peters while flying short-haul across Europe and left the book on the plane. Much sadness.
Another book by P.D. James, An Unsuitable Job For A Woman, is discussed in Page One 92.
Another book by Toby Litt, Becoming Myself, is discussed in Page One 119.
Peter Høeg’s Miss Smilla’s Feeling For Snow is also discussed in Page One 105.
