A Novel Idea!
Posted by: Keir Graff

anovelidea_smThe April 15 issue of Booklist, Spotlight on Historical Fiction, is now live on Booklist Online. I couldn’t resist having some fun with the topic. So, in the spirit of “Reading Is My Business” and “The Read,” I humbly offer “A Novel Idea.”

At first glance, Mackay-Whyte and Boodles appeared to be gentlemen. Upon closer inspection, however, the threadbare quality of their clothing—Mackay-Whyte’s frayed waistcoat, Boodles’ laddered stockings—suggested that they were men of low birth wearing fancy dress. Or, perhaps, actors. But the truth was far worse—for they were men of letters.
