This deserves its own post :- Oprah.com gave me a rave review!
"a tale of a city that's gritty, utterly real and filled with surprises
both horrifying and tender. Much like a baguette, this fabulous story is
crusty on the outside, sweet on the inside, and once you've had a bit,
you can't wait for more."
And who doesn't like baguettes?
Now, I've talked to people who are a little snooty when it comes to Oprah's Book Club and I'll say this: anything that gets people reading is fantastic in my book. And anything that gets people reading my book is doubly fantastic!
Also, look at some of the other names on that list of "Unputdownable Mysteries": Patricia Highsmith, Kate Atkinson, Stieg Larsson, and Ruth Rendell. Esteemed company, and damned fine writers.
