Kinsey and Me : Stories Paperback / softback
by Sue Grafton
My name is Kinsey Millhone. I'm a private investigator, licensed, bonded, insured; white, female, age thirty-two, unmarried, and physically fit.
That Monday morning, I was sitting in my office with my feet up, wondering what life would bring, when a woman walked in and tossed a photograph on my desk. 'Somebody killed my husband.' Published thirty one years after A is for Alibi, Sue Grafton's Kinsey and Me, is her first compendium of short stories.
It features nine Kinsey Millhone short stories, each a gem of detection, as well as autobiographical pieces written in the decade after Grafton's mother died.
Together, they show just how much Kinsey Millhone is a distillation of her creator's past, even as they reveal a child who, free of parental discipline, read everything and roamed everywhere.
But the dark side of such freedom was that very parental distance . . . This dazzling and often moving collection displays the depth and range of Grafton's writing and reminds us of her unique talent as a storyteller.
