Karel Capek — Not in De Waal

18 Dec

Occasionally something crosses my desk which really impresses me, and I think, why didn’t I know about this long before now. Karel Capek is a Czechoslovakian scholar who pubished a book title “In Praise of Newspapers” in 1924 It was translated into English by M. and R. Weatherall. In particular Chapter 11 titled “Holmesiana, or About Detective Stories.” Professor Capek trashes all the detective fiction writers of his genre, but read it for yourself by clicking on the link below!
