I started off the new month with some non-fiction: Nadine Akkerman’s Invisible Agents: Women and Espionage in Seventeenth-Century Britain— and if you think that has something to do with what I’m working on next, you might be right.
Right now, I’m stealing every spare moment I can with Tana French’s new stand alone novel, The Witch Elm, in which a man’s life is turned upside down when a body is found in the garden of the family home. I’ve been a fan of French’s Dublin Murder Squad books for some time, and it’s fascinating to see that familiar world inside out, to have the story told from the point of view of the person on the other end, not the detectives.
In other news, did I mention that my summer 2019 book, The Summer Country, aka the Barbados Book, has a cover? I’ll be unveiling that at some point next week. Stay tuned!
What have you been reading this week?
