fall books

"I've been saving up Donal Ryan's The Spinning Heart, the story of a village in Ireland just after the Celtic Tiger boom went spectacularly bust. I can tell just from flicking through it that it's the kind of book that sucks you straight into its world: The language is lyrical and dark and funny, the cadences of the sentences are like music and it's full of images that fly off the page like sparks. So I've been saving it till I get a solid few hours off and I can curl up and vanish into it—and this autumn, I'm actually going to do it!"
— Tana French, author of The Secret Place.
