Kinsey and Me


This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the acclaimed Alphabet series comes a collection of stories that “combines glimpses of her series detective, Kinsey Millhone, with a revealing self-portrait” (Publishers Weekly).

In 1982, Sue Grafton introduced Kinsey Millhone and created an iconic female detective. Here, in a story collection divided into two parts, Sue Grafton provides a glimpse of her own early life in the guise of the character Kit Blue, and enriches our understanding of Kinsey Millhone, one of the spunkiest, smartest, and most entertaining private investigators in all of mystery fiction.

“Terrific...The Kinsey stories and the Kit stories together open a window into Grafton's soul.”—USA Today

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 26, 2012 – This short story collection from Grafton (V Is for Vengeance) combines glimpses of her series detective, Kinsey Milhone, with a revealing self-portrait, separating the two with a thoughtful essay on the evolution of the private eye. The volume opens with nine crisply plotted Milhone tales, each with a clever hook: a woman s book club that does more than read about alibis, a twist on the classic poison that leaves no trace. The second, shorter section contains 13 pieces written after the death of the author s mother. Featuring a younger version of Grafton called Kit Blue and a moody, atmospheric style, they searingly evoke the author s alcoholic parents as she struggles to make peace with her troubled childhood. These provide moving and surprising insights into the woman behind the bestsellers. Though the two sections of the book feel strikingly different, fans will admire Grafton s impressive output and feisty fictional detective all the more knowing the challenging beginnings from which both grew.

Customer Reviews

Sue Grafton is the best!

Sue never disappoints. She is a long time between books and doesn't just churn out any old thing like other writers. You always know the book is worth the wait. Thanks Sue! You did it again!

Become one with Grafton characters

I love Sue Grafton's real life stories that grab the reader and make them part of the characters lives. I will be lost when the stories end. Everything about the adventures, people and day to day people and things in the stories are real and relatable which is what makes you truly experience the characters and story as if you are a character on the story too.

Kinsey and Me

I was very disappointed in this book. I have enjoyed this author in the past but not this time. I would not waste my money buying this book.
