Need a break (already!) from the Age of Obama?

Escape this weekend into more interesting fictional worlds. Occasional TWS contributor and Harvard political philosopher Harvey Mansfield recommends his five favorite crime writers at Forbes.com. Apart from the criminal omission of Rex Stout from his list, we're happy to endorse Mansfield's picks. We also call to our readers' attention Mansfield's short appreciation of Pride and Prejudice for National Review Online. Enjoy.
