Richard and Judy Choose Barclay

Linwood Barclay’s No Time for Goodbye has been included in Richard and Judy’s Summer Read 2008. CBC Arts comments on the significance:
A book by Toronto writer Linwood Barclay has earned a spot on the summer reading list of the Richard and Judy Book Club, the British equivalent of Oprah’s Book Club.

Husband and wife team Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan chose Barclay’s No Time for Goodbye for their summer 2008 list.
January Magazine
contributing editor Ali Karim -- who clearly has an eye -- interviewed Barclay last year for The Rap Sheet and reviewed No Time for Goodbye last November for January:
One of the principal delights in book reviewing is discovering a gem, a work that pushes the bar just a little higher -- and that is exactly what No Time for Goodbye does. The biggest surprise for this reviewer is that I’d never read any previous works by Canadian author Linwood Barclay, which made finding No Time just that much sweeter.
In all, eight books were selected for Richard and Judy’s Summer Read 2008. Besides Barclay’s No Time for Goodbye, there was The Outcast by Sadie Jones; East of the Sun by
Julia Gregson; Down River by John Hart; The Pirate’s Daughter by Margaret Cezair-Thompson; The Private Lives of Pippa Lee by Rebecca Miller; Addition by Toni Jordan; and The Resurrectionist by James Bradley.
