The Latke in the Library & Other Mystery Stories for Chanukah
1 journaler for this copy...
I got this softcover from Barnes and Noble. It's a very amusing pastiche/homage to Agatha Christie, centering on an elderly mystery writer named Agatha Krinsky who's finally agreed to move into an assisted-living facility. Almost immediately, she stumbles over a body in the library - but nobody believes her when she tells them about it. She winds up listening to several other residents recount mysteries of their own, all assuming that her "dead body" is a story she's working on... Each of these characters is based on a Christie sleuth, readily recognizable to fans, and their stories have a lovely Christie-esque style, with all the characters Jewish and the stories centered on Chanukah. The mysteries are fun, the characters entertaining, and the whole book delighted me. I want to read more of this author's work now!
