Out Past My Bedtime: Louise Penny's A Better Man


Last week I made it out for a rare night on my own to see Louise Penny talk about her new book A Better Man. She was so kind, and so funny. If you ever get a chance to see her speak you should do it.

A few notes I wrote into my phone while trying to take it all in:

  • She didn’t write her first book until she was in her mid 40’s

  • She might be the only one who can get away with writing hopeful murder mysteries

  • Some of Ruth’s poetry is actually Margaret Atwood’s

  • Forgiveness is possible and goodness exists

  • It’s never a good idea to catch a falling knife

I read the book itself in two days. She’s done it again. I’m not sure how, but Penny keeps up the momentum with these books, and I already can’t wait for the next one.
