⊗ Author Profile

“KARIN SLAUGHTER was born in 1971 and grew up in a small town in southern Georgia, where she began to write as a child. She lives in Atlanta today and is dedicated to writing, nourished by the heavy atmosphere of the deep South. Rewarded several times and described as “new prodigy thriller”, Karin Slaughter has been able to take advantage of the legacy of the big names of the thriller. In its angelic air, the new voice of the contemporary American thriller hides indeed a sharp mind, able to describe with unprecedented crudity murders, sadism, autopsies, while auscultating the psychological motivations of complex characters, never Manichean, always endearing. All the ingredients of the suspense are present to lead us little by little to the climax of a horror all the more disturbing as it is intrinsically human.

In the tradition of Patricia Cornwell or Thomas Harris, Karin Slaughter (born in 1971) perpetuates the criminal literature, is a bestseller translated in fifteen countries. She lives in Atlanta today, where she devotes herself to writing. Described as a “new prodigy of the thriller”, it is a great success with critics, its colleagues and the public, and his first novel, Dead Blind (2003), is a best-seller translated into fifteen countries. She sets the stage for a plot she will develop step by step in Razorblade (2004), À Froid (2005), and more recently Indélébile, and in which we find her favorite characters, the couple Jeffrey Tolliver – police chief – Sara Linton – medical examiner. The private life of her heroes is just as important as their role in history, and Karin Slaughter does not hesitate to give details that are sometimes very precise to bring the reader into their deepest intimacy. We also find in her novels the heavy atmosphere of the deep South, from which she is native – she has always lived in Georgia. Murder, sadism, incomprehension, suspense: all the ingredients are present to lead us methodically to the paroxysm of horror, all the more unbearable as it is intrinsically human.”

• Description : Medieval manuscripts resisted obsolescence. Made by highly specialised craftspeople (scribes, illuminators, book binders) with labour-intensive processes using exclusive and sometimes exotic materials (parchment made from dozens or hundreds of skins, inks and paints made from prized minerals, animals and plants), books were expensive and built to last. They usually outlived their owners. Rather than discard them when they were superseded, book owners found ways to update, amend and upcycle books or book parts. These activities accelerated in the fifteenth century. Most manuscripts made before 1390 were bespoke and made for a particular client, but those made after 1390 (especially books of hours) were increasingly made for an open market, in which the producer was not in direct contact with the buyer. Increased efficiency led to more generic products, which owners were motivated to personalise. It also led to more blank parchment in the book, for example, the backs of inserted miniatures and the blanks ends of textual components. Book buyers of the late fourteenth and throughout the fifteenth century still held onto the old connotations of manuscripts—that they were custom-made luxury items—even when the production had become impersonal. Owners consequently purchased books made for an open market and then personalised them, filling in the blank spaces, and even adding more components later. This would give them an affordable product, but one that still smacked of luxury and met their individual needs. They kept older books in circulation by amending them, attached items to generic books to make them more relevant and valuable, and added new prayers with escalating indulgences as the culture of salvation shifted. Rudy considers ways in which book owners adjusted the contents of their books from the simplest (add a marginal note, sew in a curtain) to the most complex (take the book apart, embellish the components with painted decoration, add more quires of parchment). By making sometimes extreme adjustments, book owners kept their books fashionable and emotionally relevant. This study explores the intersection of codicology and human desire. Rudy shows how increased modularisation of book making led to more standardisation but also to more opportunities for personalisation. She asks: What properties did parchment manuscripts have that printed books lacked? What are the interrelationships among technology, efficiency, skill loss and standardisation?
