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

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
