In the first quarter I read 6 books by new to me authors. I was particularly glad to have meet for the first time Ben Pastor, Margaret Millar and Margery Allingham, but I have to admit that Eva Dolan’s debut novel Long Way Home, was a great discovery. A brilliant novel, very well written that openly deals with the always difficult issue of immigration and on the extreme conditions in which immigrants have to survive.
