Novelist David Handler guests on 'Read of The Day' Tuesday

If you're a fan of crime fiction, you know there are a few important questions:

1. Who did it?

2. What's the twist?

3. You're really telling me (main suspect) has a doppelganger who just happened to be in northern Sweden at the same time?

4. What would Lulu do?

It's that last one that's particularly important right now. Lulu, of course, is the extremely popular basset hound in the Edgar-winning Stewart Hoag series by Old Lyme's David Handler. Hoagy, who was once a celebrated author-turned-celebrity-ghostwriter — who just might have rediscovered his literary touch — refused to go anywhere without Lulu, and it's an arrangement that's turned out well for both of them.

"The Man Who Wasn't All There" is the latest title in this very funny and clever collection that fuses elements of classic '30s noir with the snark and charm of the very late 20th century. Handler guests virtually Tuesday in the latest of our "Read of The Day" book club events held in partnership with Bank Square Books.

"Read of The Day" with David Handler, 6:30 p.m. Tuesday via Zoom; free, a voluntary $5 donation earns an online-only gift code for Bank Square Books; register at
