THE HOUSE OF SILK continued to receive rave reviews and coverage as Horowitz made his way across the country. The National wrote in a great piece on the novel that it ”has been justly acclaimed as intelligent, respectful and beautifully written. Horowitz catches Dr. Watson’s tone completely in what amounts to a remarkable feat of literary ventriloquism…“ In its “Between the Lines” section, the Sacramento Bee called the novel a “Good show.” The Christian Science Monitor also ran a nice feature on THE HOUSE OF SILK which discusses the evolution of the book and Horowitz’s comments on the timelessness of Sherlock Holmes. The Wall Street Journal ran a fantastic Q&A with Anthony Horowitz, and remarked that it “closely adheres to the conventions of a classic Holmes mystery.” In light of his upcoming events in the San Francisco Bay Area later, The San Jose Mercury News ran a Q&A with Horowitz. And the Houston Chronicle ran a nice piece on their annual Book and Author Dinner which took place earlier this week and made note of Horowitz’s appearance.
