Gráinne Fox

My guiding principle is a book that can “stimulate the mind and satisfy the heart” and this illuminates every read, regardless of categorization.  Gorgeous writing combined with propulsive storytelling.

I’m interested in narrative nonfiction that just might involve spies & espionage, or that spotlights a slice of social history I’ve not encountered yet.  I’m increasingly curious about smart non-fiction that makes me question my thinking and teaches me something new about human behavior and the world we live in.

I have a dark, soft spot in my heart for literary crime and thrillers.

I’m looking for new American and International voices, and for literary fiction that’s modern and swoon-worthy on a line level but with an equally enveloping plot. I love dysfunctional families (aren’t they all?). I am inevitably passionate about Irish Writing, of course, and always keen to read lots more.  I love a singular, spectacularly written literary memoir just as much as I love a transporting piece of historical fiction.

What I'm Looking For

Contemporary fiction, literary or crossover.  Narrative non-fiction that could be either an untold story of heroics from WWII or a slice of social history from Europe. Smart thinking that continues my education! New American voices.
