Hi there, my mum is going to The States for the first time and is staying in Boston. I'd love to buy her Boston-based fiction...any recommendations?X
I was going to suggest The Bostonians by Henry James. Wiki say all these novels are set in Boston, but I don't know how accurate this list is.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Novels_set_in_Boston,_Massachusetts
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Novels_set_in_Boston,_MassachusettsSorry, try that again.
Nope, it doesn't want to link, sorry.
Does she like crime fiction? Dennis Lehane's books are all set in Boston. This is a list on Goodread: [http://www.goodreads.com/places/1311-boston-massachusetts Books in Boston]]
Try again: books set in Boston
Thank you both, I'm going to look into some of these!
Linda Barnes has a crime series set in Boston - the first ones were published here years ago but may be hard to find new here - should be possible to find A Trouble of Fools secondhand.
There are books also by Lisa Gardner and David Hosp as well as Dennis Lehane. You can choose from our full collection by genre, hope you find something your Mum will like:www.tripfiction.com/Search?Location=Boston
