Hannah Tinti, author of The Good Thief and Animal Crackers, will read from her work as part of the Carr Reading Series on Thursday, November 6 at 4:30pm at the Illini Union Bookstore.
Junot Diaz has this to say about The Good Thief:
“Hannah Tinti has written a lightning strike of a novel—beautiful and haunting and ever so bright. She is a 21st century Robert Louis Stevenson, an adventuress who lays bare her characters' hearts with a precision and a fearlessness that will leave you shaken."
The Cleveland Plain Dealer's review of Animal Crackers mentioned:
"Like Edgar Allan Poe and Patricia Highsmith, Tinti has a brilliant feel for the uncanny, how it can turn situations inside out and drape our lives in mystery."
Hope to see you at the reading.
