We finally touch on some Murakami weirdness with Confessions of a Shinagawa Monkey from Haruki Murakami’s short story collection, First Person Singular. In this story, we deal with themes of loneliness and unrequited love, all told from the perspective of an unusually intelligent monkey.
We're back with another Book of the Month! This time around, we're discussing the very first Sherlock Holmes story, A Study in Scarlet, written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. We have a lot of fun breaking down the origin of Holmes and Watson, as well as how unique this first story was written.
