[Excerpt]

Personal existence is the cruel joke that could've been avoided, had particle enigma's never joined. The tragic self-awareness humans endure, is where the beginning ends. The natural order gives it to you, then takes it away.

PENSIERI


La paura ci impedisce di vedere e di cogliere le occasioni di salvezza
che ancora ci restano e che sono spesso a portata di mano.
Ecco perché, per affrontare pericoli improvvisi,
così come per combattere avversari o nemici,
le doti più importanti sono il sangue freddo e la presenza di spiri... Read more of this blog post »

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
