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.
