The Book Thief

Travis McDade writes, “I have a book coming out in October about a man who stole books and maps from Columbia University some years ago. The book deals a little with his theft and capture but largely with the unique federal sentence he got for his crime. (This is particularly timely considering the Forbes Smiley case about to be resolved by a sentencing judge.)” The book is called The Book Thief: The True Crimes of Daniel Spiegelman and it’s being published by Praeger; more details at the publisher’s catalogue page.
