Karen Templer's obsessive rant about Florence Broadhurst: Her Secret & Extraordinary Lives by Helen O'Neill made me laugh.
"...Broadhurst was a pattern designer famous for her wallpapers, and she was also mysteriously murdered. So the book is some sort of crazy cross between a wallpaper catalog and a murder mystery — and I'm quite certain I've never encountered a book that meets that description before. (Who knew that description could be so enticing?)"
Now I want this book, too.
