After writing four moderately successful novels, Stout turned to the form of the detective story.
In Fer-de-Lance he introduced Nero Wolfe, the obese, brilliant aesthete who solves crimes without leaving his New York City brownstone house. Wolfe has, as did Stout, a passion for gourmet foods and gardening.

I love reading about Archie and Wolfe set in different times and how Stout weaves in persons and news events of the time. Of course, I would have read that one close to when it was written. Two of my favorite novellas are the ones set in World War II, but he did not write much in that time period.
Thanks for this enjoyable post. The plot was wafer-thin but the narrative voice of Archie had me in splits. Tracy - What a terrific choice for F!
I like the mechanics of how the murder in this novel is committed, and I agree with you that Archie Goodwin is a wonderful character. Tuesday, June 26, F is for Fer-de-Lance.
