Riassunto: For Sue Grafton's legion of readers, and written with her full cooperation--including access to her working journals and personal memorabilia--"G" Is for Grafton is a must for those many fans who regularly write, e-mail, and Internet each other with questions about her intrepid heroine, Kinsey Millhone. Maps & diagrams. of illustrations.
Review: If you need help picturing Kinsey Millhone's sweats and tousled hair; listing her personality traits; modeling your dietary habits on hers; or reviewing her early childhood, education, career and marriages, pick up G Is for Grafton. Coauthors Kaufman and McGinnis--a political scientist and an English professor, respectively--have, with the cooperation of Sue Grafton, delved into the writer's working journal to flesh out this fictional biography. Once and for all, those nagging questions that keep fans pacing and tooth-gnashing between the M-N and O of Grafton's series will have something to keep their heroine alive between mysteries. How old is Kinsey, exactly? Why do her car and her home need to be so small? Why did she become a PI--was it the wardrobe?
Included in this monument to Millhone is a delightful spread of black-and-white photos of Kinsey's Santa Teresa haunts: her offices, the marina, and, yes, the jogging path. Readers are also treated to Sue Grafton's discussion on the creation of her famous character: "Kinsey is my alter ego--the person I might have been had I not married young and had children.... While our biographies are different, our sensibilities are the same.... I think of us as one soul in two bodies, and she got the good one." G is for Grafton will grab Kinsey Millhone fans.
