All Over The PLACE

Tana French’s Faithful Place, which will be released tomorrow, is quickly becoming a reviewers’ darling. In addition to several strong reviews, the author, Tana French, was interviewed on NPR this weekend. Faithful Place is the author’s third mystery, following the well-received In the Woods and  The Likeness.

NPR, All Things Considered, worth listening to just to hear French reading from the book, with her light Irish accent.

NYT, Be It Ever So Awful, No Place Like …, Janet Maslin, “…her best, by a long shot.”

Seattle Times, New in crime fiction: a brilliant Irish mystery…, Adam Woog

Salon, Tana French turns the detective story inside out, Laura Miller, “Part Raymond Chandler, part Roddy Doyle, crime fiction’s rising star takes it into mesmerizing new territory”

Wall Street Journal, Cityside Thrillers, Tom Nolan; reviewing the book along with The Wolves of Fairmount Park by Dennis Tafoya, Nolan says “Some thriller writers burst onto the scene in a sudden blaze of hype, while others bubble under the level of mass awareness for years before gaining a significant following. Two authors who have been steadily attracting fans—but not much fanfare—are Tana French and Dennis Tafoya. Both are likely only to widen their audiences with their latest work.” Library customers would be surprised by the idea that French is under the radar; they have place a significant number of holds in several libraries.
