Both Stout and the late Baring-Gould had a lot of fun in print subjecting the stories .

Both Stout and the late Baring-Gould had a lot of fun in print subjecting the stories of Sherlock Holmes to an analysis of the personal clues to the character of the reticent Holmes and that's the sort of treatment Wolfe gets here. In fact, a case is made for the idea that Wolfe was by Holmes out of New Jersey opera singer Irene Adler when the two met in the Balkans and that Archie is unwittingly the nephew of the reclusive Wolfe. Further chapters deal with the food, the orchids, the retainers at West 35th, the cases solved and the inconsistencies spotted in Archie's reports of them.

Nero Wolfe of West Rhiert Fifth Street is the dirst book length appreciation of Rex Stout and the world of Nero Wolfe. It is a pleasant book to read, filled with detailed lists and catalogues of observations about Wolfe, Archie, the supporting cast of regular characters in this series, and other items of interest like Wolfe's unusual vocabulary, his aphorisms, the dishes he is served, the murders he has solved, and so forth.

For a popular book written with wit and brevity this is a superior introduction and review of the Wolfe novels and novellas McAleer's comprehensive, anecdotal biography, REX STOUT, is the much more important study. But this essential biograph of Stout serves a different person. There a other studies of Wolfe, and of Archie, more recent and in some ways more comprehensive, but with William S. Bating-Gould's NERO WOLFE OF WEST THIRTY FIFTH STREET, and with John McAleer's REX STOUT you have the author and his finest invention nicely covered.

The first half was great. the last few chapters were sort of added space filler but I did finish it any way.

Filled with fun facts. If you are a Nero Wolf fan you will enjoy this book of Wolf facts. The only problem is it made me want to read all the stories again!

The story of an incredibly eccentric man of enormous intellect. Is he a detective out of conviction that the guilty should not escape justice or for his own entertainment? Or perhaps it is just a way to make enough money to live his chosen life style. In his youth he was apparently motivated by idealism as many of the young are. If when young a person is not liberal there is no heart. If not conservative (or at least something of a cynic) when older there is no brain. After reading all of the mysteries and this biography, I conclude that this complicated man's motivations will always remain a mystery but Barring-Gould has at least shed some light on his subject. Barring-Gould also advances the theory that during the time in which Sherlock Holmes was believed to be dead, he had a liaison with Irene Adler in the Balkans. According to this theory Wolfe is the child resulting from that liaison. If true, this would certainly explain Wolfe's mental acumen.
