Anyone can participate.

Thank you to Emma at Book Around the Corner for bringing this book to my attention in July. I rushed to purchase it immediately, but it has only now made its way to the top of the pile. So far it sounds as promised, a hilarious over-the-top fun read.

The Midnight Examiner
by William Kotzwinkle

He sat before his computer, hammering out the last stories of the week for the Midnight Examiner. A medicine bottle filled with gin was close at hand.

Blurb from Goodreads:

Fantasist William Kotzwinkle takes readers on a wild ride in this thriller set in the sleazy world of the tabloids. Howard Halliday, the editor of the Midnight Examiner and the unlikely protagonist in William Kotzwinkle’s latest novel, becomes embroiled with several shady characters, including a bloodthirsty crime lord and a porn queen in danger, who lead him into a bizarre escapade that rivals only the freakish headlines in the Midnight Examiner.

Friday Finds – July 18, 2014

Shocked Friday

Friday Finds is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading to showcase books you recently found and added to your TBR (to be read) list. It doesn’t matter whether you found them free online, borrowed them from a library or purchased them somewhere. Anything works.

I found two this week, one which led to another, you know how that goes.

I spotted The Midnight Examiner by William Kotzwinkle at Emma’s Book Around the Corner. It looks like a totally wild and over-the-top read.

I’ve already ordered a copy in English, but couldn’t resist showing this German cover.

While I was browsing at Powell’s Books, I came across The Game of Thirty which looked intriguing and happened to jump right into my cart.
