Well, it’s not Saturday anymore… But only by a few minutes so let me just get in a quick literary pairing for your weekend read. Today I’d like to recommend The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. It’s a great story, told in a thoroughly unique way and has even been adapted for the stage. Neat!
The mystery novel is told from the perspective of a fifteen year old boy who has an unnamed behavioral condition (most probably high-functioning autism). But Mark Haddon, the author, has been adamant to state that this book is not about Asperger’s or autism, it is about being an outsider and seeing things outside of the box. The process in which the main character, Christopher, goes about solving the murder of his neighbor’s dog is unusual and demonstrates that what makes him different gives him a different perspective.
Pair this with something full-bodied, unique, and complex. I’d say a Malbec, but it seems like an obvious choice. So think outside the box!
Sorry for the late (and short) nature of this post, but I’m ears deep in tech rehearsal and kinda need to go to sleep like a responsible adult…
