  1. Hi guys, long-time listener coming out of lurk mode to talk about Tom’s discovery of Patrick McGrath. Constance isn’t my favorite of his works, but as you liked it, maybe you’ll like some others. I do a breakdown of his work here – http://wickeddark.smugmug.com/ArtandAbstracts/Interpretations-and-Abstracts/i-9NnNTbC/0/M/Kristen_SmithJanuary%2014%2C%202015P1090914-M.jpg – since he’s one of my favorite living authors. Enjoy!!
