John Boyne, author of my favorite book of last year, The Heart's Invisible Furies is back with a deliciously twisted tale of a not very talented, but incredibly ambitious novelist, one Maurice Swift. If you are a fan of Patricia Highsmith's The Talented Mr. Ripley you will love this. Maurice is a master at seducing more talented writers both male and female and purloining their work, leaving damaged, destroyed lives in his wake. By turns hilariously funny and horribly cruel A Ladder to the Sky is a great read.
