Reviews

Juggling well worn subjects which 'get murky or pretentious', this is a streetwise, erudite suggestive enquiry into problems and myths of the writer's role. Her light touch on hard thoughts, her humour and eclectic quotations, lend enchantment to an argument that has as many undulating tentacles as a well developed sea anemone - IndependentHer witty, occasionally self-depracating and always ingenious approach is a delight - Sunday TimesA witty and profound rumination about writing - The TimesA playful, informed and briskly sensible discussion of the writing life - Sunday Telegraph
