ABOUT THE BLOGGER


Dave Rosenthal came to The Baltimore Sun as a business reporter in 1987 and now senior editor for enterprise and investigations. He reads a wide range of books (but never as many as he'd like), usually alternating between non-fiction and fiction. Some all-time favorites: A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole; Wind, Sand and Stars by Antoine de Saint-Exupery; and anything by Calvin Trillin or John McPhee. He belongs to a book club with a Jewish theme.
