Our MSM coverage.

In the circles I travel in (which is, hard to say, centric circles which try not to rock the boat... aka the middle class personified), there's a lot of talk about HK.

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.
