old is the new new


worth seeing • Academy Chicago, themselves fans of the obscure title, is going to reprint all six Earl Derr Biggers’ Charlie Chan titles pubbed between 1926-1932. Lets join in and pray to the book deities, this is not a precursor to a string of authorized ‘sequels’ the only thing good that can be said for such things is that once pressed upon the public they make the original material seem much more genuine. Like everyone else in the world I was introduced to Biggers work via the endless streak of detective book club reprints. But that was a century ago, I think I will once again take a trip to 1920s Hawaii with the great detective.
