The short February caught me off guard (as it does every year - at least I am consistent!). But here it is at last, the March read: Jonathan Letham's Gun, With Occasional Music. From the description:
Metcalf has been shadowing Celeste, the wife of an affluent doctor. Perhaps he's falling a little in love with her at the same time. When the doctor turns up dead, our amiable investigator finds himself caught in a crossfire between the boys from the Inquisitor's Office and gangsters who operate out of the back room of a bar called the Fickle Muse.
Mixing elements of sci-fi, noir, and mystery, this clever first novel from the author of Motherless Brooklyn is a wry, funny, and satiric look at all that the future may hold.
If you want to get a jump on April, we'll be reading Fae Myenne Ng's Steer Toward Rock.
