Stupendo!, 25 Mar 2003
I could not put this book down. Ihave chosen it for my book club to read next month. We take it in turns to have people round for a meal and we are not supposed to read the book first. I've cheated! I have meant to read it for years, as when we first came to Pendle we lived in Earby and I remember meeting Dr Morrison when he examined me at the surgery. He told me my problem was water retention and I should drink more water to cure it! I read everything Blake Morrison writes in the guardian and shall look forward to reading his mother's story when it comes out in paperback on April 1st.
