The Murder on the Links Book Description :

Hercule Poirot’s second appearance is “a remarkably good detective story” as the Belgian sleuth must determine who left a corpse on a golf course (The New York Times Book Review). After introducing Hercule Poirot in The Mysterious Affair at Styles, Christie brought him back three years later in 1923 for this “ingenious” murder mystery set in France (The New York Times Book Review). Instead of a hole in one, Poirot finds one in a hole—a body in a shallow grave next to a golf course. The man who summoned him from London to Merlinville-sur-Mer is the man who now lies in the ground, and the great Belgian detective, along with his companion, Capt. Arthur Hastings, intends to find out who put him there. Fatally stabbed in the back with a letter...

How to Talk About Books You Haven t Read Book Description :

In this delightfully witty, provocative book, literature professor and psychoanalyst Pierre Bayard argues that not having read a book need not be an impediment to having an interesting conversation about it. (In fact, he says, in certain situations reading the book is the worst thing you could do.) Using examples from such writers as Graham Greene, Oscar Wilde, Montaigne, and Umberto Eco, he describes the varieties of "non-reading"-from books that you've never heard of to books that you've read and forgotten-and offers advice on how to turn a sticky social situation into an occasion for creative brilliance. Practical, funny, and thought-provoking, How to Talk About Books You Haven't Read-which became a favorite of readers everywhere in the hardcover ...
