Ecological

by Sharon Tucker


Earth day (April 22) always makes me long to be a flower child again. I want to wear Birkenstocks, put on a patchwork granny dress and to have flowers in my hair—all of which I did daily a number of years ago—except maybe the flowers. I want to spend the day outdoors in a sylvan setting, far away from the city where cars vibrate with rap music, and I want to be in a place where the internet is just a line of code on the breeze.

Earth Day approaches and many mystery readers are nothing if not topical readers, often getting an added fillip of pleasure from reading Christmas mysteries in December, American (or British) Colonial Mysteries in July, or Halloween mysteries in October (not forgetting that Guy Fawkes Day is also celebrated in this season). A good way to wade into spring and celebrate the earth is to read the subtle Malice novels of Graham Thomas, whose writing brings the British terrain of his novels as vividly to life as a Constable landscape might.
