The Corner

Man of Christmas Mystery

Today’s Between the Covers podcast is with Otto Penzler, editor of Christmas at The Mysterious Bookshop. The book is a collection of Christmas mystery stories. We discuss the elements of a great mystery story, why so many mystery writers are drawn to Christmas as a setting, and how the rise of web commerce and digital books are changing business for bookshops like the one Otto owns in Manhattan.

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
