Dust Off Those Dust Jackets

I forgot to mention here Patti Abbott’s intriguing new “Forgotten Book Fridays” project, which asks bloggers to write about a favorite work that has been pushed to the literary wayside over the years. Among this last Friday’s first crop of picks was The Lady in the Lake, Raymond Chandler’s 1944 novel (and the inspiration for Robert Montgomery’s 1947 film noir of the same name). I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see some of the choices from The Rap Sheet’s “One Book Project” show up in this series as it evolves over the coming months.

Abbott promises to keep track of each Friday’s “Forgotten Book” offerings across the blogosphere in her own blog, Pattinase.
