I’m so glad you enjoyed it, I have yet to read it but it was recommended to me by someone who’s taste I trust and every person so far that I’ve recommended it to has loved it. It’s been kept off the top of my ‘to-read’ pile by other things I’ve been obliged to read so it’s a pleasure waiting for me.
He is Jonathan Moore, author of 6 other novels, but before you read his other books you might want to consider his advice to aspiring writers that I came across in an interview, he said:
‘Unless you’ve been diagnosed with a terminal illness, there’s no rush. Slow down a bit, read, re-read, and revise, and then start submitting to agents or publishers. Otherwise you might publish six books and then have to change your name.’
