"The Book Thief by Markus Zuzak- I loved it - A truly unique narrator. The language just slayed me...PLUS I did a literary festival with Markus on Kauai and we had an opportunity to chat on the airplane about writing and creating a great story. The connection between the writer and the work is really important to me. PLUS our respective interviews were in your magazine at the same time!"
Eachday until December 24th an author featured at TVFH over the last few years tells us of their favourite read of 2009 in our Author Advent. You'll have to provide your own chocolates and there's no little door to open, but you could try placing your hand over your eyes and then removing it again. Authors include the likes of Julian Barnes, Iain Banks, Paul Torday, Patrick Gale and Marina Lewycka.And for those of you who like lists, we'll list them all on December 29th.
