We creatures of the theatre must thrive on the variances of emotion, or how would we perform the roles required of us? // Karen Lee Street, EDGAR ALLAN POE AND THE LONDON MONSTER
This title has been on my shelf for a nice long time, and I had never gotten to it. But because my tour is in Baltimore, and Poe is everywhere, I decided to crack into it. While Baltimore isn't a locale in the book, I'm glad it spurred me into picking it up.
Karen Lee Street has created an entire world in the pages of this book, and I am delighted that there are more in the series. Poe is a dynamic character, haunted by his family at home, including his ill wife, but drawn into a mystery with Dupin - the first of his kind.
I was enthralled by the historical basis of this book, and the attention to detail within this period piece. Looking forward to more outings of Poe and Dupin; hopefully closer here to Baltimore's streets.
