Susan Sher’s son, Graham Moore, makes his HuffPost debut!
Graham Moore, is a first time novelist, but to Washingtonian he is the younger son of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Chief of Staff, Susan Sher.
Moore’s first novel, The Sherlockian, will be published in December by 12 Books, home of the great Christophers — Hitchens and Buckley.
In the mean time, he tackles the premiere of the BBC series Sherlock, which started airing last night on PBS and its website.
Over at the Huffington Post, Moore couldn’t be happier with the glossy tabloid take on a classic literary figure:
The writers of Sherlock have certainly done theirs. They’ve taken pieces from the original stories and cleverly updated them to the modern day. A plot point that once hinged on a pocketwatch now rests on a cell phone. Instead of taking ads in the daily paper, Holmes sends text messages. (Though from the amount of texting he does in this episode, I really hope he got the Unlimited Plan. Those surcharges will be murder on a guy without a discernible source of income.) In a modernizing twist that seems truly unnerving, Watson’s return from the war in Afghanistan in the original stories is here updated to… the war in Afghanistan.
