Book of the Month
I love books. They're fun, educational, and they are excellent to use as bases in a game of sandlot baseball.
Until I read Douglas Perry's "The Girls of Murder City," I had no idea that "Chicago" was based on actual events. Perry's splendid book recounts those incidents and paints a sordid, intoxicating look at 1920s Chicago.
My review of the book for "BookPage" sums up my feelings perfectly. You can read it here.
Read in peace.
