Been a busy girl and going to hear Mal Peet and Meg Rosoff talk about their writing and books at Exeter Phoenix in October. Always inspiring to hear writers you rate holding forth on their books and the process.
In fact, it’s even interesting to hear people you don’t rate. Have read several YA’s recently that have been head-hurtingly, toe-tinglingly awful – would enjoy hearing the authors talk about them at a festival for £10.00 a head.
Mal Peet’s Life is an unexploded diagram is immense: crunchy, surreal and unthinkable. Brilliant. Read. It. Now.
