This week we have a new roundup of thrillers to occupy cold nights, plus we chatted with Rick Mercer about his new memoir, Talking to Canadians, and Jenna Butler, whose memoir, Revery: A Year of Bees, was a non-fiction finalist for this year’s Governor-General’s Literary Awards. Coming next week: We’ll bring you the annual Globe 100 list of the books we loved this year.
