I still remember fondly my first exposure to James Clavell though the book Shogun in the '70s. An eye-opening trip to feudal Japan filled with epic events, the unique culture of the samurai and larger than life characters.
Over a thirty year career, Clavell wrote five books in his Far East series that went from 16th century Japan to early 19th century China, from WW II Singapore to Hong Kong in the '60s. All of these have been reissued in beautiful new editions priced from $16 to $18. With warmer weather and vacations coming up, any of them would make for absorbing reading sitting in the shade with a gin and tonic at hand.
We're pleased to announce that two of the finest crime novelists around will be at Mystery Lovers Bookshop on May 31. Please join us for a unique event with Michael Connelly and George Pelecanos, each with a new book.
We originally announced this event as a 2 pm talk and signing at the Oakmont Carnegie Library. That event will still take place but it is sold out. If you have already purchased tickets, please join us at 2 pm at the library.
We have arranged for the authors to do a signing at 4 pm at the book store to accomodate those fans who were not able to get into the library event.
