Alan Bradley and The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie


AbeBooks’ Richard Davies interviewed author Alan Bradley recently about the success of his mystery novel, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. The book won Britain’s 2007 Crime Writers’ Association Debut Dagger Award, and the 11-year-old sleuth in its pages, Flavia de Luce, has developed her very own fan club, which is where I found this video trailer of the book.

I really like it. It’s dark and creepy and cool, in a Wednesday Addams meets Edward Gorey sort of way. Makes me want to read the book, so it’s done its job. I’m possibly living under a rock, but I’ve not seen many video trailers for books – are they a common thing?
