Crime Lit Crit?

As much as I like working in the academy, I'd never have made it as a straight-up academic.  Who wants to work that hard?  Still, a toe-dip into that world is good for the leetle gray cells, and I really liked this brief literary analysis of The Red Carnelian, an apparently forgotten masterpiece of the romantic mystery genre.

In other news, I am following Patrick Leigh Fermor on his 1933 trek from Holland to Istanbul in the first installment of his story A Time for Gifts.  It is COMPLETELY ENGROSSING, so tune in to The Right People Travel for some gushing commentary on that before we return to our regularly scheduled programming.
