Bluestalking Reader

Nan, thanks for that recommendation. I did place a couple interlibrary loan requests for Godwin books yesterday, but I don't thing this was one of them. It's going on the list for next time I find breathing room.

Les, you're very welcome! I loved 'Atonement' too, by the way. A dear friend of mine reviewed it for the publisher when the book first came out, then passed me the book before it was published, so I had the chance to read it early on. That started me on the road to loving McEwan's writing. It's so dark and wonderful. Very up my alley.


Evenings at Five is one of the very best books I've ever read. I found it so deeply touching, so real, so honest. I haven't read her others, but this one alone makes her a wonderful writer.

Oooh, she mentions one of my favorite books (Atonement)! I've only read one of her books (Evenings at Five). Thanks for the lovely interview.

Bluestalking Reader

Lucette, I'd like to read her 'A Southern Family.' That one sounds very good.


Thanks for this interview--GG is one of my favorite authors, and I just happened to have reread Evensong, so I was thinking about her.

Bluestalking Reader

Andi, thanks so much. She's such a fascinating person, isn't she? I got this interview by using her publicist as an intermediary, and never spoke or communicated with Godwin in person. That just adds to her air of writerly mystery...

I must read her book on writing! Must, must. Borders sent me a coupon for my birthday today, and if they have this book in stock it's SO MINE.


Wonderfully done, as always!

I haven't read any of Godwin's work (hiding my head in the sand as we speak), but I'll be seeking something out now!
