New P.D. James Nonfiction

To go with the Edgar awards post yesterday, NPR had this review of award-winning mystery writer P.D. James' new nonfiction book entitled, Talking About Detective Fiction.

In this slim work, James shares her opinions of mystery fiction.  It is not an academic study; it is more a meditation on the genre. If you like mysteries at all, I would suggest getting your name on the hold list for this book.

I was also interested in this work because my book group is reading James' An Unsuitable Job For a Woman for our next discussion. Hopefully, I will have time to read both books before our February meeting.
