The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel


The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel by Diane Setterfield, 2006

Setterfield tells the tale of Vida Winter, a popular but secluded author, who grants private interviews to Margaret, a bookseller, in order to write her long awaited biography. A bizarre history with graphic flashbacks horrifies readers and tempts them to read on. Meanwhile Margaret's inquisitive mind and careful research lead readers to an exciting and surprising conclusion.

I'd rate this one engrossing (sometimes gross) and surprising. Check catalog for availability.
