The funny things you find in libraries

Almost Blue

I made an interesting discovery the other day at work: Almost Blue, a giallo novel by Carlo Lucarelli (who served as co-writer on Dario Argento’s Non Ho Sonno), which was made into a rather effective film by Alex Infascelli, has an English translation, and my workplace had a copy in stock. It’s a pretty slim tome - less than 175 pages - so I expect it won’t take long for even a notoriously slow reader like myself to get through. Judging by the review quotes on the back, the translation, by Oonagh Stransky, is itself rather highly regarded. I’ll let you know when I get the chance to read it.

By the way, the Giallo Project will hopefully be continuing tomorrow with Death Laid an Egg. Apologies for neglecting it for so long.
