Okay, so what should I send Riley and Murphy to read? You liked my THE CRIMES OF ARTEMUS KEEL, the picaresque story of the blind gambler’s jaunt through the US in 1951. But how about THE TEMPORARY SCHOLAR, about a professor recovering from schizophrenia who is hired by the worst little college in the South, a college so bad people who uphold academic standards are getting murdered? Oh, and the professor has an imaginary friend, the Friar, a Dominican friar from the sixteenth century whose life he studied and who now won’t go away. And there are others.
Let me know.
