I have been longing to reread some Joyce Stranger for a long time. I wasn't sure which title I wanted to start with, or indeed what many were about, but I wanted her back in my life. And when it came down to it, I couldn't quite remember why. I could remember the sensation of them; the way I devoured them, in that slightly giddy drunken haze you do when you're a kid and you find somebody new to read and realise how prolific they have been, years before you were born, how much you have left to re ...more
