We have a new book for our winter season…

Nocturnal Animals, by Austin Wright (originally published as Tony and Susan

A little information about this thriller of a book:
Many years after their divorce, Susan Morrow receives a strange gift from her ex-husband. A manuscript (Nocturnal Animals) that tells the story of a terrible crime: an ambush on the highway, a secluded cabin in the woods; a thrilling chiller of death and corruption. How could such a harrowing story be told by the man she once loved? And why, after so long, has he sent her such a disturbing and personal message…?

A few reviews:

Absorbing, terrifying, beautiful and appalling. I loved it… Unforgettable — Ruth Rendell
A superb and thrilling novel… Extraordinary — Ian McEwan
Tony and Susan is unbeatable. I was bowled over by this disturbing, bold novel * Observer *
Astute, cunning and thrilling in equal measure, this is one lost novel that deserves to be found by a whole new generation of readers * Independent on Sunday * I want to read it all over again… Not since Cormac McCarthy’s The Road have I been so gripped and unsettled by a piece of fiction — Sarah Waters Marvellously written – the last thing you would expect in a story of blood and revenge. Beautiful — Saul Bellow
Compelling… Mesmerizing… Absolutely irresistible * New York Times *
A nail-biter and a penetrating portrait of guilt and revenge * Sunday Times *

Tony and Susan was made into a movie, called Nocturnal Animals. The book can be found as either Tony & Susan as originally published, or with the title Nocturanl Animals to link it to the film.

Wishing you a wonderful Holiday Season in the meantime, a good start of 2018 – I hope to see you on January 10th!
