And the winners are…

No losers here, only winners.

A mystery commenteer left me this sweet yet insulting feedback:“I am glad to be a visitor of this sodding web blog, regards for this rare information!”

I love it.

Much better than that though is the blurb on the back of The Lost City of Z – “David Grann’s Lost City of Z is a deeply satisfying revelation–a look into the life and times of one of the last great territorial explorers, P. H. Fawcett, and his search for a lost city in the Amazon. I mean, what could be better–obsession, mystery, deadly insects, shrunken heads, suppurating wounds, hostile tribesmen–all for us to savor in our homes, safely before the fire.”
–Erik Larson, author of Thunderstruck, Devil in the White City and Isaac’s Storm

Perfectly summarized and charmingly said. There is nothing better than reading about suppurating wounds, mystery and obsession. At least not for me. Mr. Larson, please proceed to the front of the auditorium to accept your award.
