    I contribute my review of Every Man for Himself by Hopkins Moorhouse, a forgotten Canadian mystery. So well received in 1920! Sadly, I don’t share the enthusiasm. http://brianbusby.blogspot.com/2020/04/a-foggy-night-in-hogtown_14.html

    I haven’t had much time to read everyone’s reviews yet—hope to do so this week. It looks like another good year!

    Thanks for hosting the 1920 Club and linking our posts! Just came across this TLS essay about what people were reading in 1920. Maybe you and Simon would like to reach out to them or the writer about your 1920 Club. It would be very relevant and meaningful. 🙂
