Crime scene yellow tape was in evidence for the Chevalier’s Books discussion of the new story collection, “The Highway Kind: Tales of Fast Cars, Desperate Drivers and Dark Roads,” Nov. 15. The collection of original stories hail from acclaimed crime writers, including Michael Connelly, Ben H. Winters, Gary Phillips and Sara Gran.
They discussed the open road and how it can lead you astray, with editor Patrick Millikin at the Larchmont book shop.
‘Mozza at Home’
Also in November at Chevalier’s, chef/baker-extraordinaire Nancy Silverton, Windsor Square, joined co-author Carolynn Carreño, to discuss their new book “Mozza at Home.”
Plymouth Blvd. resident Fonda St. Paul will read from her new femme fatale thriller, “Encore, Encore!,” at Chevalier’s Thurs., Dec. 7 at 7 p.m.
The book is set in the legendary, Old World-style Dakota building in New York, next door to where St. Paul once lived and was a neighbor of John Lennon and Yoko Ono. The late Beatle would often stop and pet her pugs. “He was a very sweet man,” she recalled. “When John Lennon was killed, I was walking my pug in front of the Dakota and heard the shots as I turned the corner, missing it by mere seconds.” The native New Yorker is married, appropriately, to criminal attorney and defense litigator Sanford Passman.
To those who ask, “Aren’t you ever going to write a romance novel?” she replies that she once did. After three people were killed half-way through the plot, she gave up and continues to write about what she’s become quite an expert at — serial killers.
