My Book Boyfriend is a weekly meme hosted by The Unread Reader where readers can swoon over boys in books every Wednesday!
Today’s Book Boyfriend is… Archie Goodwin from the Nero Wolfe mysteries by Rex Stout.
A Decent Likeness of My Book Boyfriend:
After seeing Timothy Hutton play Archie Goodwin in the A&E series, it’s impossible for me not to picture Archie as looking like Timothy Hutton, who looks very good in suits.
