12264RE: [NeroWolfe] The Brownstone House of Nero Wo [7 Attachments]
- Jan 10, 2013I've also read this one, Ellen, and I agree - it's a fascinating book. Our
library has it, so I check it out every year or so and browse through.
> I've been reading and browsing through Ken Darby's "The Brownstone House
> Nero Wolfe" and found it quite remarkable.
> First off just the amount of research done with the appropriate referrals
> to Rex Stout's books was a commitment in itself. By page 9 the author
> goes into detail all the addresses listed for Nero's Brownstone. Something
> that never crossed my mind and would not have thought to look twice when
> reading it.
> The drawings of each floor including when Fritz lived on the top (roof
> garden) floor with Theodore and when he was moved to the basement.
> Also the main (p. 101), 2ND(p. 64) and 3rd floors(p. 65) with one drawing
> of Nero's office alone (p. 127).
> Chapter 10 , page 152, has the last letter Archie received from Nero, now
> living in Alexandria, Egypt. I'll let Nero's letter speak for itself and
> not comment on it.
> I took pictures with my cell phone which leaves much to be desired but I
> tried my best with what I had. I've also included the drawings of Nero
> wolfe in his office and his Brownstone which are on my wall in the living
> room next to the front door(please turn). The other side of the front door
> has my drawings of Sherlock Holmes from Hound of the Baskervilles and
> Sherlock's pipe dream.
> I hope you are able to view most of it. This book was so fascinating and
> written entirely by Archie!
