Here is scholarly research made human, a scholar turned sleuth. Working in a library, in an old bookshop, or in a church—in Florence, New York, Paris, Dublin—a literary detective has followed mysterious clues of forgery and murder, ferreting out strange relations between fact and fiction to get at the very sources of human drama or farce. Rudolph Altrocchi depicts his sleuthing adventures in literary research with a gay, humorous touch.
