Gail Bowen -- Night Table Recommendations

For over thirty years, I led three lives: I was first, a wife, parent and grandparent; second, an academic, and third, a writer. By the time I'd finished with Walter, the Farting Dog (a book which, as the owner of a farting dog, I highly recommend); reviewed whatever was new, hot and student-friendly in Canadian lit and met my own writing deadlines, I didn't have much time to read the way I read when I was a kid - with passion and without plan.

Two years ago, I retired from university teaching. Since then, I've been making up for lost time. Here are some books that I've read and loved within the last month.

Charlaine Harris Series Coming to Comics

Thursday, Feb 25, 2010 at 10:59am

$10.99 Add to Cart

Charlaine Harris, best known for her Sookie Stackhouse novels which form the basis for HBO's True Blood series, will be venturing into another medium. Dynamite Entertainment will be adapting her Harper Connelly books, starting with Grave Sight, into a comic series.

From the back cover copy of Grave Sight:

Harper Connelly has what you might call a strange job: she finds dead people. She can sense the final location of a person who's passed, and share their very last moment. The way Harper sees it, she's providing a service to the dead while bringing some closure to the living - but she's used to most people treating her like a blood-sucking leech. Traveling with her step-brother Tolliver as manager and sometime-bodyguard, she's become an expert at getting in, getting paid, and getting out fast. Because for the living it's always urgent - even if the dead can wait forever.
