She’s the best-selling author of The Keeper of Lost Things, among other works of wonder. Ruth has a truly amazing ear and eye for language, a unique “voice” to be cherished. I just finished Queenie Malone’s Paradise Hotel and am utterly smitten. It’s one of my favorite novels of the decade: hilariously funny and poignant by turns, thoroughly satisfying and endearing. Magic. If this isn’t a book that you’ll hug to yourself, I’ll be very much surprised. You can follow her at ruthhogan.co.uk.
