Valentine

It's hard to know if author Elizabeth Wetmore has a problem with men in general, marriage or whether it's the oil boom in Odessa, Texas that attracts the “scum of the earth” that bothers her.

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for.
