“The Big O” is coming to the U.S.A.

I am pleased to announce that Harcourt will publish Declan Burke’s sidesplitting and compassionate second novel, The Big O, in the U.S.“in the very near future,” according to Burke’s blog, Crime Always Pays .

Raved Detectives Beyond Borders about this absurdly entertaining caper story: “Each character takes time for some humorous introspection, which makes the story a fast-moving caper built up of leisurely episodes. Perhaps [Ken] Bruen had this in mind when he called Burke's writing `a joy, so seamless you nearly miss the sheer artistry of the style and the terrific, wry humour.'"

Burke is an entertaining and educational blogger, too. Until Crime Always Pays came along, I had no idea what a hup-ya was, not to mention an Interweb yokeybus. I hope you'll join me in congratulating Burke on this deal. If you haven't read The Big O yet, you have a treat in store.

Great news. I'm glad Burke's novel will be getting a Stateside release.

Fair warning to all the kiddies out there: don't even think about doing a Google search on this book's title... the results may blind you.

Yes, youngsters out there may find searching for the novel an educational experience. Let me save you the time, though. The Big O, as all adults know, is a slang term for ... for ... well, for the Olympic Stadium/Stade Olympique in Montreal.
