Dream House

A novelist haunts the Old West Side

From the February, 2009 issue

Valerie Laken played a mean second base on the O Team-the Observer's co-rec softball team-a few years back. I usually played catcher, and I enjoyed chatting with her on the bench or over postgame beers. She had a house on the Old West Side a few blocks from mine, and to my surprise she was interested in details of murders in the neighborhood.
