Interview: SUE GRAFTON

Best-selling mystery writer Sue Grafton believes in the form that she has chosen to mine: "The mystery novel offers a world in which justice is served. Maybe not in a court of law," she says, "but people do get their just desserts." Her readers appreciate her buoyant style, her eye for detail, her deft hand with character, her acute social observances, and her abundant storytelling talents.

In these two video interviews, Grafton shares how she got her start, her favorite authors, about the ideas behind the new Kinsey Millhone adventure U is for Undertow, why Grafton and her detective are so much alike, and why you're not likely to see Kinsey Millhone on TV anytime soon ...
