The Road to Unfreedom Russia, Europe, America by Timothy Snyder

Every day we learn more and more about how Trump sold out America before the votes were even counted in 2016. But there is more at work here than the foolish actions of one criminally incompetent and bigoted buffoon. This book delves into the deeper causes of the challenges and crises currently...

The Heartening Voice is the book I consider my best. I don't know why. It just is. And there is something of an interesting story behind the process of how I came to write it.

At the time, I was doing a lot of writing, trying to compile things for a new book. But I kept hearing a voice in my head.... Read more of this blog post »

Tame love is like wallpaper


I said


ripping through painted flowers with sharpened nails


and only when the plaster lay exposed and scored


pale and livid grey beneath


did I see the red tears


running down your face.


 


In these hooked and barbed hands


lies no tender strength


to stitch back the shreds of what...

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
