How Did You Get This Number
A new collection of witty observational essays, a la David Sedaris, from the author of I Was Told There’d Be Cake.
Review and excerpt.
Dan Brown is famous for a reason. The reason is that this kind of thing is fun:
“This superior religious artifact quest thriller from Carcaterra careens through the streets of Florence with quick stops at various museums and galleries for interesting sidebars on the life and work of Michelangelo..The author’s solid, well-executed premise will keep readers turning the pages.”—Publishers Weekly
New in paperback:
Bad Things Happen
“The shovel has to meet certain requirements.” Great first line.
