It's hot. It's humid. We're sticky. It's Friday and already this week we've watched the New York City Transit system crumble in the wake of a tornado in Brooklyn(?!) It's definitely August--and time to get away. But what to read?
Springfield Massachusetts, it turns out, has the answer. Courtesy of an anonymous librarian at the Springfield City Library, we present a list of Foreign Crime Fiction in Translation for your beach reading pleasure. This list is a year old, but it's got lots of goodies from the increasingly well known Henning Mankell to the less well-known but much loved Massimo Carlotto.
Springfield librarians--we salute you. Everyone else, grab a mystery and let's get the heck out of Dodge.
