5.0 out of 5 stars Subtle brilliance, 6 July 2004
This review is from: Mr Golightly's Holiday (Paperback)
I am a teacher of literature and I read this novel as a result of a (male) colleague's enthusasm for this writer. I read it with some initial scepticism but was totally converted.
This is a very clever, subtle and indeed brave book. It is also very funny and kind. Once you have read it and got the hidden point (and do press on until you do because it is both original and thought-provoking) you will want to go back and read it all again. Then it is even more enjoyable.
This is entirely original work which has the immense advantage that it is very easy to read while in no way superficial. Quite the reverse. More, please, Salley Vickers. We need novelists like you.
