Two Minute Book Review -- Lawrence Block's The Burglar in the Rye

Well, this is another Bernie novel, and I love him, the burglar who always finds himself in murder cases. This one would appeal to any writer. A few years ago, someone tried to sell off some of J.D. Salinger's personal letters at an auction. This is a fictionalized retelling of that moment, where Bernie does everything he can to protect Salinger because he loves his books so much. Great fun on about 20 different levels. I like Salinger's work, of course, but I love Block's. He really captures that love we all have for Catcher in the Rye if we hit it just at the right moment in our lives.
