Helen Simpson, IN-FLIGHT ENTERTAINMENT
Helen Simpson has never written a novel, but is a modern day Katherine Mansfield, and her stories perfectly capture moments of singledom, marriage, working life, childhood – everyday living, really.
Louise Doughty, WHATEVER YOU LOVE
So many people have told me how wonderful this is that I know I’ll like it. And I like Louise Doughty on Radio 4, too.
I was introduced to this brilliant crime writer fairly recently. She’s ace on families, small communities, relationships – and utterly compelling to boot.
And when I come back, I can look forward to reading the new Victoria Hislop, THE THREAD, in which she returns to her beloved Greece. It’ll be out in October, just in time for half-term.
So, if you're off on holiday soon, what are you taking? And, if you've already been, what books did you read and, more importantly, were they any good?
