I am not a critic. I am a fiction writer, and a bookseller. It is not my job to point out the flaws in other writers’ work. It is my job to help draw attention to writers whose work I adore. I read lots of books that I don’t gush over on the internet. When I tell you, dear internet, that I love a book and think that you should buy it, it’s because that’s how I feel.
