Finally in paperback and now fully revised and updated through "O" Is for Outlaw, the Edgar Award-winning guide to the world of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone.
With the cooperation of Sue Grafton, who provided unprecedented access to her working journals, authors Natalie Hevener Kaufman and Carol McGinnis Kay have created a fully dimensional biography of Kinsey Millhone that will answer every question readers have ever had. Here is a feast for Kinsey's fans that includes a time line, maps, floor plans, a case log, and photographs.
But this book is also a revealing journey into the mind and work habits of Kinsey's creator. You'll learn why Grafton chose to write detective fiction and how she responds to runaway plot lines and unruly characters. You'll find out which titles for the series she has discarded, what she plans for Kinsey's future, and how she sees their evolving relationship. Ultimately, you'll understand why Grafton is so esteemed in the field of detective fiction and, from an analysis of her craft, why she has earned such a prominent place in American letters.
