Interview / Entrevue

Judith Krantz, Princess Daisy (1980). Because, ‘bookbuster’, as they used to call bestsellers with sex scenes.

Right now it’s ‘Last night I dreamed I went to Manderley again’ from Daphne DuMaurier’s Rebecca, which I’ve echoed in a little homage in the opening line of my latest novel Learned by Heart.

Unutterably cluttered.

Sickness, dementia, death: Timor mortis conturbat me, as the plain-spoken medievals put it.

Not so secret, but I’m working on a musical.
