I was sad to read that Gregory McDonald, the author of the excellent Fletch books, has died. The series of Fletch books are miles better than the movies (although, Fletch is still a quote machine among me & my friends), much smarter and darker. The Fletch character has more of an edge to him in the books, and definitely takes his lumps. In particular, I recommend Fletch and the Man Who, which is about Fletch joining a presidential campaign as a press aide. I love how the candidate is merely this faceless creation, the Man Who…
Take some time to read the entire series, I guarantee you will be entertained.
