New books by former Capitol Hill reporters

Not to toot our own horns (okay, just a little) but a couple of former The Hill staffers have books coming out next month.

David Grann, whose book “The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon” was a New York Times bestseller, obsesses about obsession in his new book: “The Devil and Sherlock Holmes: Tales of Murder, Madness and Obsession."

And if you haven’t read “The Lost City of Z” yet, it’s out in paperback.

Sarah Pekkanen’s debut novel, “The Opposite of Me,” is the story of twin sisters who couldn’t be more different. It will hit bookstores March 9th.

Both Grann and Pekkanen were original staffers when The Hill started in 1994 and then moved on: Grann to The New Republic and The New Yorker and Pekkanen went to the Baltimore Sun before turning to writing full time.
