Chris Bohjalian at His Best: New Novel Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands

"I'd forgotten how perfectly Chris Bohjalian takes on character, how attentive he is to every idiosyncrasy and how, in spite of the heavy matter, is never precious or sentimental. I remember now, and having read the disturbing and beautifully written Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands, my reading pile is about to get about a dozen books deeper."

Margaret Atwood on Stromatolites and Crime in the Canadian Arctic

"The dinner-table conversation that night turned to murder, as it tends to do on boats. How could you murder someone here, without getting caught?"

( #ThatSummer , #books , #reading )
For Biographile's That Summer series, in which authors share personal stories on the summers that shaped them, Atwood recalls her 2012 trip through the North West Passage and the wonderfully morbid thoughts that inspired her upcoming story collection Stone Mattress.

Throwback Debut: Submarine by Joe Dunthorne

Literature has its share of coming-of-age protagonists, with all their awkward stumbling through the struggles of becoming an adult. None has been quite like Oliver Tate, the narrator of Joe Dunthorne's novel Submarine.

Oh, William Tecumseh Sherman: We Hardly Knew Ye

"It has been said that you can't know a man until you walk a mile in his shoes. Well, the reader gets pretty darn close in Fierce Patriot: The Tangled Lives of William Tecumseh Sherman"

Terrorist, murderer of innocents, drunk. Yes you could say he was a character.
