Once we figure out how to let you unsubscribe with ease we'll send you something.

Please let us know if you don't want to receive our admittedly sporadic e-mails any longer.

A Magnificent Thriller

The Paying Guests

by Sarah Waters

McClelland & Stewart

How effortless great writers make it seem, this business of novel writing. Sarah Waters, no little stranger to the art, has taken matters to a new level with her latest book, The Paying Guests. If anyone asks you what the components of a novel should be, if anyone out there wants a primer on the architecture, the intent, the pace of a great story, refer them to this one. It is a great achievement.
