Author of the Day: Kate Atkinson

Kate Atkinson is a relatively new find for me. I read her debut novel, Behind the Scenes at the Museum, a couple of years ago because it won the Costa (Whitebread) Book of the Year Award. That one book was enough to make me a fan.

I have since torn through all four of the books in her mystery series featuring Jackson Brodie. They are my favorite mysteries ever. I look forward to re-reading them.

Those I have read are in red. The one my TBR shelf is in blue.

Behind the Scenes at the Museum (1995) (reviewed here)

Human Croquet (1997)

Abandonment (2000)

Emotionally Weird (2000)

Not the End of the World (2002) (short stories)

Case Histories (2004)

One Good Turn (2006)

When Will There Be Good News? (2009)

Started Early, Took My Dog (2011) (reviewed here)

(If anyone has posts related to Atkinson or these books and would like me to list it here, please leave a comment with a link to your post.)


  1. She's a new author for me as well. Though I have several of her books, I've only read one - Case Histories, which I read on holiday earlier this year and really enjoyed. Now I'm really keen to read the rest in the Jackson Brodie series and some of her earlier stuff as well.

  2. I've never read any Atkinson, but would love to sometime. I've got a few sitting on the shelf, just need to move them up the TBR somehow.

  3. Clover: Have you read more since you left you comment? I read the second JB book, have the 3rd coming up on my iPod, and just got the 4th in the mail. I love them!

    Louise: The TBR list is always a challenge! I am crazy for her mysteries, but I also read Behind the Scenes at the Museum and it was brilliant.
