The Denver Post glowingly reviews Heidi Durrow's new novel, The Girl Who fell from the Sky.

In the telling of this coming- of-age novel, Durrow manages that remarkable achievement of telling a subtle, complex story that speaks in equal volumes to children and adults. Like "Catcher in the Rye" or "To Kill A Mockingbird," Durrow's debut features voices that will ring in the ears long after the book is closed on young Rachel Morse. It's a captivating and original tale that shouldn't be missed.

Singer-songwriter Billy Bragg talks to the Independent about making his theatrical debut.

The Guardian has British authors (inducing Hari Kunzru, Philip Pullman, and Will Self) look back on the New Labour party's 13 years in power.

The Telegraph chooses the best books for all ages of children.

The Chicago Sun-Times interviews author Joe Meno.
