HUGE SALES LEAP FROM LAST BOOK: Sales for The Witch Elm are 25% higher than those of The Trespasser, previously her highest-selling hardcover. The Witch Elm is set up to be a blockbuster paperback.
AND A NEW CRITICAL PEAK TOO: The Witch Elm received front-page coverage in The New York Times Book Review, as well as rave coverage in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Entertainment Weekly, Salon, Time, Vogue, InStyle, The New Republic, Bustle, and more. It was named a New York Times Notable Book of 2018, and a Best Book of 2018 by NPR, The New York Times Book Review, Amazon, The Boston Globe, LitHub, Vulture, Slate, Elle, Vox, and Electric Literature.
STAND-ALONE SUSPENSE: The Witch Elm has a murder and detectives, but our hero is the victim of a crime. French brings all of her powerhouse atmospherics and characterization to a story that plays with the traditions of suspense fiction and keeps you guessing.
UPCOMING TELEVISION SERIES: Dublin Murders, a series based on French’s In the Woods and The Likeness, is set to premiere on Starz in 2019.
BACKLIST REPACKAGE: Tana’s backlist will continue to be repackaged following the style of The Witch Elm.
Praise for The Witch Elm:
“Like all of her novels, it becomes an incisive psychological portrait embedded in a mesmerizing murder mystery. [French] could make a Target run feel tense and revelatory.”—LA Times
“ ’I’ve always considered myself to be, basically, a lucky person.’ That’s the first line of Tana French’s extraordinary new novel…Here’s a things-go-bad story Thomas Hardy could have written in his prime.”—Stephen King, The New York Times Book Review
