Gill Glad you enjoyed it, Alex. I agree; she will be one of the greats.

Kathleen Moving this up my list--really must read her. Thanks for the nudge.

Fascinating about the music. But I didn't like that you referred to the old Grazing in the Grass tune as disco! It was pre-disco--psychedelic soul, baby. :-)

Nocturnalux This is one those authors I've been dying to read for ages now but somehow have yet to get around to.

I was uncomfortable with this too - I mean, I know the date is wrong - but I couldn't think what else to call it. Psychedelic soul it is! Thank you!

Well, you have something to look forward to!

Katie Just finished and adored this book. I hadn't read the summary, so I was NOT prepared for the shift. I think that made my reading experience even stronger. Loved the characters so much. Her writing feels so effortless and intimate.
