4.0 out of 5 stars A biography and a bit more...., 19 Nov. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Faraway (Hardcover)
Lucy Irvine has managed to combine her life on a remote island, with an informative biography of a very inconventional couple (Tom and Diana Hepworth). She has managed to combine her literary skills (which are obvious) with that of investigative journalist (for once, the phrase "investigative journalist" should be taken as a compliment!). It would have been to easy (and boring) to take Tom Hepworths diaries/writings, and copy them verbatim, but instead, she visited Pidgeon Island and research the whole thing, usings Tom's writings as a backdrop rather than the complete definitive account of what happened. I do not know what Diana Hepworth thinks about this book, but I feel that her trust was justified and she should not be disappointed in the final result. This book, to an extent is two books in one and this makes it all the more entertaining.
