Out and About: Ian Rankin and Kate Atkinson

Rave reviews have been pouring in for the new books from Ian Rankin and Kate Atkinson, including a Wall Street Journal piece from Tom Nolan that reviews both.  Marilyn Stasio, in the New York Times Book Review, calls Ian’s new series and detective, Malcolm Fox, “well positioned to take the pulse of [Edinburgh] in 2009, a time of mass layoffs and spiking unemployment…It’s a good introduction to the sober Fox and his younger partner, Jamie Breck.”  “The Complaints” has also received great reviews in the Christian Science Monitor and the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

“Started Early, Took My Dog” is reviewed by Laura Miller at Salon.com who writes: “each of [her] books, including this latest, is a delight: an intricate construction that assembles itself before the reader’s eyes, populated by idiosyncratic, multidimensional characters and written with shrewd, mordant grace.” Catch Kate Atkinson on tour in one of the following locations:
