Brad Meltzer on the Best Present He's Ever Received

Posted by admin

Brad Meltzer, author of THE BOOK OF LIES, shows us how sometimes the little things make all the difference in the world, as he describes a very special present given to him after a momentous event.

The best book present I ever got was the one my Mom gave me after my first novel was published. It was an old leather journal, with one of those cool old-book-tie thingies on it. And it had just the right amount of spacing on the lined pages inside. Perfect for any nut who cares about such things.

But the best part was the tiny note she put inside. The note she wrote just for me.

Tomorrow, Mark Sullivan recalls his first introduction to the likes of the Hardy Boys, Robinson Crusoe, Professor Moriarty and Long John Silver.
