Every so often, I would like to make a book or movie recommendation. These will constitute over time a list of my favorites.
The list begins now:
The Devil in the White City
This book is about the 1893 Chicago World's Fair and a notorious killer operating in its midst. It serves as a great introduction to Chicago history and is, as a resident of Chicago, required reading. Don't let my bland description fool you, it is one of my favorite books of the last few years and likely one of the best.
