Apparently Mark Haddon has a new book out called A Spot of Bother. Haddon is the author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, which was on the British Librarian’s must read list. The latter book is written from the point of view of Christopher, a teenage boy with autism. Christopher sets out to investigate the death of his neighbor’s dog, a crime in which he is initially a suspect, but winds up learning more about his family and his own past.
I had trouble putting down The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, so I think I’ll be picking up A Spot of Bother when I get a chance.
