“Rather than the grey and dreary institutions of public perception, these should be places of innovation and experiment, where readers can take a chance on a book, pick one because they like the look of the cover or the title or because they see it returned by the gorgeous young man who lives in their street. After all, they will have absolutely nothing to lose. The book will be free.”
Ann Cleeves, The Library Book

“We don't often notice the people who look after us, do we? Though we'd miss them if they weren't there”
Ann Cleeves, Harbour Street

“But she thought the men’s brains had turned to jelly. They couldn’t see straight. Faced with a pretty woman they all seemed to lose their reason.”
Ann Cleeves, Telling Tales
