It has long been a mystery to me
How our own history has come to be.
Did it all stem from human decisions
Taken in the minds of fine logicians?
If this be so, we then have to believe
That the mind of man is apt to conceive
A plan of action for the world outside
And execute it with a thought applied.

Love lives as love lives,

No definitions, please.

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
