Lilian Nattel was born in Montreal and decided to be a writer at the age of 10 when she realized that not all writers were dead. Later, she lived in a Toronto garret and temporarily became an accountant to pay for the accommodation. Ever since the publication of The River Midnight, which was the first of her national bestsellers, she's written full time. That novel, published in 8 languages, was followed by The Singing Fire, and then Web of Angels. A new novel is coming soon!

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

A fast engrossing read. I loved the narrative voice of a woman whose highbrow mode of expression is combined with social cluelessness, the result of trauma and isolation. The building of the story and the gradual breakdown of Eleanor's isolation is d ...more

Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson

Beautifully written, minimalist economy of style. A man retires to a remote cabin and a coincidental meeting brings back the memory of his youth, his father and a last summer spent in the seemingly idyllic countryside.
