On Conan Doyle: Or, The Whole Art of Storytelling, by Michael Dirda. There's always something happening on the Sherlock Holmes front, but this season offers a particularly rich conjunction of items. At the top of the list is Michael Dirda's book, which takes the Holmes canon as a point of a departure but deftly encompasses the full sweep of Doyle's life and work.
