“The Alienist” (by Caleb Carr) takes place in turn-of-the-century (1890’s) New York, told from the point of view of a newspaper man, who’s in on something that’s never been tried before….using psychology to develop a profile in an attempt to catch a serial killer. It’s historical fiction, so thoroughly detailed and brilliantly realized that you’ll feel you’re on the set of “Gangs of New York,” or “The Knick” while you’re reading it!
We’ll meet at the Midtown Scholar, upstairs, Sunday May 1, at 2:00 PM. Please contact Joe Foner at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP or for questions. Hope to see you there, and happy reading!
