Hi everyone -

Thanks for the warm welcome.

I can see I started a little conversation about Megan Abbott. I'm glad to see she is being read.

I like the adjective used by Ed in describing Megan's work as lyrical. I couldn't agree more. I would like to add subtle. When I started reading "Die a Little" I was wondering when the story was going to pick up. But then I caught myself sucked in "lyrically" ( is that even a word - :) ) and "subtlely" into a very dark story. After that I couldn't wait to read her next book "The Song is You". Loved it and immediately bought her third book "Queenpin".

Well, thanks again for the welcome.
