I even learned that there’s such a thing as Tartan Noir. I have read Ian Rankin, who is probably the king of Tartan Noir, and I have enjoyed his Inspector Rebus series a lot. So I’ll be on the look out for some of the other writers and see how they compare.
Later in the day I happened to tune in just in time to listen to Selected Shorts and was delighted to hear a Carlos Fuentes story, Chac-Mool, and laughed out loud to David Sedaris read The Living Dead. If you’ve never heard David Sedaris please do something about that quick. He is so funny.
