IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Eureka by Anthony Quinn

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK —— I love visiting the worlds Quinn creates; he has a wonderful sense of time and place that immediately immerses the reader into the period that he is writing about. He also has a delightful way of having characters reappear from previous books. The first book was Curtain Call which tells the story of Stephen Wyley, Freya’s father. The second which has the more direct link to Eureka is Freya and propels us into the life and times of the extraordinary Freya Wyley, one of the great modern day characters. All three books are worth visiting but for me Eureka resonates the most. Greg Waldron


 

BOOKSELLER PICK

Get Poor Slow by David Free

From page one it was clear this was going to be an Abbey’s Bookseller Pick, with its elegant prose combined with pointed barbs and acute observations. The wit and venom with which Ray Saint, the literary critic narrator at the centre of the mystery, conveys his jaundiced world view is thoroughly entertaining. Craig Kirchner
