MY BOOK BEGINNING
An academic life, Dr. Johnson observed, puts one little in the way of extraordinary casualties.-- Death at the President's Lodging by Michael Innes.
Isn't the vintage Penguin cover terrific!
I am reading this 1936 Ivory Tower mystery for the Vintage Mystery Challenge. I'm in Minneapolis for work for a couple of days, and this is the perfect book to read after a long day.
