Candice Millard, DESTINY OF THE REPUBLIC: A TALE OF MADNESS, MEDICINE, ANDT HE MURDER OF A PRESIDENT
My pal Alice recommended this one; it's good non-fiction, about the rise and very brief presidency of Garfield--about whom I knew next-to-nothing before I read this. Political biography meets Devil in the White City. Found the first half a very good read, slowed a bit after Garfield is shot, but still good.
