9. Sarah Bakewell, At the Existentialist Café

8. Ruth Franklin, Shirley Jackson: A Rather Haunted Life

8、路德·富兰克林和雪莉·杰克逊:《焦虑不安的生活》

  Shirley Jackson was best known for literary suspense. Jackson’s unique contribution, writes Franklin, was “her primary focus” on the lives of her generation of women who were raised in the mid 20th Century.

  Winters’ timely new work of speculative fiction is set in an alternative US: Lincoln never became president, the Civil War never happened, and there are still slaves in the certain states. Winters, an Edgar award winner, has crafted a fast-moving thriller with a contemporary ethical framework.

  温特斯适时推出的新作品《隐秘的航空公司》,这部推理小说是以一个另类的美国为背景的:在那里林肯没有成为总统,美国没有发生内战,在一些州奴隶依然存在。埃德加奖获得者温特斯创作了一部情节紧凑的恐怖小说,并在小说中引入了当代的伦理框架。
