RISING TO NEW COMMERCIAL HEIGHTS: French debuted at her highest NYT bestseller position yet with The Trespasser, and it’s her bestselling hardcover so far.
AND A NEW CRITICAL PEAK TOO: The Trespasser affirmed Tana as a genre-defying writer, earning review coverage far exceeding the level of her previous books. It appeared on best of the year lists in Elle, Entertainment Weekly, InStyle, People, Buzzfeed, Amazon, Cup of Jo, and Vulture. She received glowing review coverage in The New York Times, the Washington Post, The New Yorker, and more.
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.
BACKLIST REPACKAGE: Tana’s backlist will continue to be repackaged following the style of The Trespasser, and we’ll continue with that look for The Witch Elm.
Praise for Tana French:
“A tour de force…When you read Ms. French—and she has become required reading for anyone who appreciates tough, unflinching intelligence and ingenious plotting—make only one assumption: All of your initial assumptions are wrong.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times
“[Tana French] inspires cultic devotion in readers…most crime fiction is diverting; French’s is consuming.”—The New Yorker
“There’s nothing standard about French’s approach to crime fiction, which plays the form much like a jazz musician improvising on a standard. Even when the outlines of the mystery seem familiar…she finds a way to get at enriching themes and powerful emotional truths in fresh and surprising ways.”—Chicago Tribune
“To say Tana French is one of the great thriller writers is really too limiting. Rather she’s simply this: a truly great writer.”—Gillian Flynn
“Terrific—terrifying, amazing, and the prose is incandescent.”—Stephen King
“One of the most distinct and exciting new voices in crime writing.”—The Wall Street Journal
