Funnily enough ... that's who I'm reading now.
Oooh, which one?

PS: I hope everyone knew that was a joke statement, what a horrible way to deduce the careers of two genuinely genius level authors who wrote incredible works through massive adversity! :D

Yeah, I was well impressed by it, think it was either yourself or @jonah who recommended it. I'd only read The Accidental by her years ago, Winter is definitely on the reading list now, cheers!

The Accidental is a good one! My favorite is Public Library and second is Boy Meets Girl. Enjoy! Winter is even better!

The New Iberia Blues by James Lee Burke. Latest in the Dave Robicheaux series. I think JLB is the greatest living crime writer and the Robicheaux series is outstanding and this is no exception.

The Elementals by Michael McDowell. Southern gothic horror about the haunting of a wealthy Alabama family. Good stuff.

Started The Strange Library by Haruki Murakami - A slight but engaging read; next up is Rupert Thompson's No One But You.

Fatherland by Robert Harris. I've been meaning to read this for years, although I don't like Harris and his anti-Corbyn stance on Twitter. I do love a good alternate history detective novel.
