Laura by Vera Caspary (1943) - The novel that the movie, Laura, was based on. I read it a few years ago and reread it in May 2016. In some ways it's exactly the same as the movie, but also, of course, very different. The book is five sections, each told from a different point of view of the various characters. Waldo Lydecker is first and by far the best. My interest in Laura is that I'm basing one of the ten sections of my new novel, K2 (working title) on the movie, and what always seemed to me a secret, underlying narrative, or alternative reality. A mystery that is never solved.
