Lots of books I'm very excited about in this week's Friday Finds.
1. Anything For A Vote by Joseph Cummins. The subtitle is Dirty Tricks, Cheap Shots, and October Surprises in U.S. Presidential Campaigns. I heard the author on NPR. He also keeps a blog. Fascinating subject.
2. The Uncrowned King - The Sensational Rise of William Randolph Hearst by Kenneth Whyte. I heard the author on CBC radio just this morning, and am very interested.
3. First Dog Fala by Elizabeth Van Steenwyk. This is a children's book about FDR's dog. I read about it here, and can't wait to get hold of it.
4. The House on Tradd Street by Karen White. I read about it here, and have already ordered a copy from my local bookstore for a Christmas present(which I will borrow!).
5. Henrietta Who? by Catherine Aird. I read about it here, and it reminded me to look into her work. This one sounds particularly good.
6. The Big Clock by Kenneth Fearing, an old mystery I can't wait to read. I read about it here.
