Straight Outta London
Already hailed by the Sunday Times (London) as "one of the outstanding novels of the year," Zoe Heller's newest novel, The Believers, was released to an American audience last week. A follow-up to her acclaimed Notes on a Scandal, this novel again focuses on the frailties of the human character. In particular, as the title suggests, themes of faith and doubt are tested, leaving the novel's characters to question long held beliefs in marriage, family, religion, sobriety, love, morality, and life.
Heller was interviewed on NPR's Morning Edition this morning. If you missed it, you can listen to it here.
