Big news for fans of Diane Setterfield’s wonderful novel, THE THIRTEENTH TALE: She has a new book out! Yes, Setterfield’s second novel, BELLMAN & BLACK, will be published in the U.S. this Tuesday, Nov. 5, so find a copy and start reading. I confess, I got a copy from the U.K. because I couldn’t wait, so I’m already reading it, and so far, it’s just as wonderful as THE THIRTEENTH TALE.
What’s that? You haven’t read THE THIRTEENTH TALE?!! Well, you must. It’s one of the best books I’ve read in years, a solid, old-fashioned Gothic mystery with a big country house and a very strange family with lots of skeletons in their closets. Her writing style may remind you of Dickens or du Maurier. If you’re a fan of theirs, you’ll be a fan of Diane Setterfield. Enjoy!
