By the Book: Charlie Parker and Beyond - In Conversation with John Connolly

We speak with John Connolly, who's perhaps best known for his crime fiction novels featuring anti-hero Charlie Parker, about the value of growing with a character over time, writing in the crime genre, the importance of a sense of place, and the appeal of darker, complex themes. And then we dive into the particular pleasures of reading specific genres, and revelling in the tropes and familiarity of it all.
