Good stuff - heard this piece played live by Martynas Levickis and was entranced.

Fest pins him down - and I've always found him notoriously difficult to pin down...

This review is from: Martynas (MP3 Download)
I heard Martynas play with the Manchester Camerata on Sunday just gone. Extraordinary. Some of the items on the CD were part of the concert. A glorious virtuoso event. Real warmth, communication and vibrancy in the emsemble. Buy this by all means - but see him play for yourself if you can!

4.0 out of 5 stars We found love in a hopeless place, 24 Mar. 2013

This review is from: No More Mulberries (Paperback)
- as the song says... Here the cultural challenges of living and working in rural Afhganistan serve as a backdrop to Miriam and Iqbal's marriage. She - an ex-pat Scot. He, an Afghan, both steeped in and alienated from aspects of his cultural heritage. Will they negotiate a tortured path and emerge with a deeper commitment and understanding, each of the other?

Mary exposes us to their journey, and gives us a compelling picture of Afghan life, whilst making us care deeply about the characters we meet along the way.

As the novel reaches its moment of decision, the reader is pulled along - I was certainly eager to know the outcome - and extended my reading sessions, unwilling to leave things hanging in the air.

A good read. And a great companion piece to Mary's non-fiction work: Drunk Chickens and Burnt Macaroni.
