One of my favourite non-fiction in 2022 was Edward Achorn’s Every Drop of Blood on Abraham Lincoln’s second inaugural address period.

It might sound like a dry read on a very specific historical moment but Achorn has great talent in storytelling.

I discovered this writer years ago with Fifty-Nine in ‘84, my favourite baseball book. A recollection of a 19th century pitcher named Old Hoss Radbourn and his incredible season with the Providence Grays.

I finally got around to reading “ The Silent Patient” by Alex Michaelides. Wow. I couldn’t put it down.
