I was delighted to learn this week that Amazon had included my book, The Devil in the White City, in its bucket list of 100 books to read before you die. Considering the list includes works by George Orwell, Toni Morrison, Vladimir Nabokov, Charles Dickens, and many other literary heroes, I feel a bit humbled, or, to be more precise, like the kid who shows up at a birthday party in swim trunks when in fact it’s not a pool party at all. Anyway, I stand deeply honored.
