The Criminalist: Sarah Weinman

In case you haven't seen the news, Sarah Weinman, blogger at Confessions of an Idiosyncratic Mind has a new column, The Criminalist, for the Barnes & Noble Review. She says the column is "to talk about new books that I love and hope others will love as well, and to shine a light on unjustly neglected books and authors from the past. My focus will always be crime, but it might not always be fiction, nor always for adults, nor books entirely in prose."

Her first column starts with a review of Falling Angel by William Hjortsberg, first published in 1978. She says that it's the first piece in an unofficial series on crime fiction published in the 70s which she sees as a decade of transition.

Sarah Weinman also writes "Dark Passages", a monthly online crime fiction column for the Los Angeles Times.

I'm looking forward to the new column.
