John Dunning knows the horse and book worlds well This is the last book in the Janeway novels. I found I liked it the least of the series.
John Dunning knows the horse and book worlds well. Before writing his first book, he worked for horse trainers in Denver, Idaho, and California, and he ran the Old Algonquin Bookstore in Denver. The Bookman's Last Fling offers a smart, authentic look into both worlds. Janeway, agreeably misanthropic as always, complements a cast of complex, fascinating characters, local color, and solid dialogue. This is the last book in the Janeway novels. While I really enjoy the book collector's aspect of the novel, I did not enjoy the horse racing aspect. Dunning speaks of it in the same way he speaks of book collecting.
