Sydney Bauer

Sydney Bauer responded to some questions at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's "First Tuesday Book Club."

Two exchanges from the Q & A:

What is the book that changed your life?

This may sound strange but it was “It” by Stephen King but not because of the horror genre as I am not actually a huge horror fan. But it was the way he got inside the children’s heads, thought their thoughts, spoke their language. I didn’t read that book, I lived it.

What is your most over-rated book?

"The Cat in the Hat". I never got into it.

The Page 69 Test: Undertow.

Among the praise for Undertow:
“Compelling from start to finish, this fast-paced thriller combines engaging characters, sharp dialogue, and a plot so gripping that the pages seem to turn themselves. A handsome job.”
—Richard North Patterson.

“Terrific legal suspense – a great debut.”
—Lee Child
