My dear fellow tea lovers,  late last night Buckingham Palace  phoned me  and asked me ever-so-politely  if I would consider being  the official tea lady at the marriage of Harry & Meghan.  I told them that I would have a think about it.  What are your thoughts my dears?  Leave me a comment Yes or No. Should I fly the thousands of miles to serve tea at a Royal Wedding?   If you were me, wou...

This novel is not an easy read, but it is exceptionally well crafted and deals with subject matter that I think needs to be brought more out into the open and dealt with. And even though there were times when I didn't think that I could finish readin ...more

This House of Grief by Helen Garner
"I used to joke that I would happily read Helen Garner's shopping lists – recently someone asked me where they'd been published, which makes me think I'm not the only person who relishes her words so much. One of the finest essays I've read about w..." Read more of this review »

Vernon God Little by D.B.C. Pierre
"Brilliant! A worthy winner of the Man Booker Prize 2003. From the outset I felt a lot of sympathy for Vernon Little whose world view seems to be much wider and keener than the dumb-ass adults he's stuck with in Martirio. I've read quite a few diff..." Read more of this review »

The common thread of said dismissals is a denunciation of..." Read more of this review »

I was hooked from the start. Oriental Vagabonds by Richard Reagan is a magnificent, page-turning adventure story set on the eve of World War 2 in the Far East, and which is stunningly evoked by Regan’s skilful writing. The prose seems to be combinati ...more

“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

“There is, perhaps, no more dangerous man in the world than the man with the sensibilities of an artist but without creative talent. With luck such men make wonderful theatrical impresarios and interior decorators, or else they become mass murderers or critics.”
