Ellen’s November Recommendation

Writing in an Age of Silence by Sara Paretsky

“I heard her lecture at Dominican and was really impressed.  I have always enjoyed her V.I Warshawski mysteries, set in Chicago, which clearly show her passion for social justice–in each book, V.I. tackles a social or political issue in addition to the central mystery.  Writing in an Age of Silence reveals how she found refuge and solace in books as a child (as did I), and traces the development of her characters, but most strongly addresses issues of social responsibility.  Challenging, and excellent.”
