5.0 out of 5 stars magnificent, 14 Dec 2004
This review is from: Ghosting: A Memoir (Hardcover)
Having picked up a copy on the back of a dismissive Newsnight review (Kirsty Wark is so seldom right about anything..),I recently had the pleasure of being stuck on a delayed train with a copy of Ghosting. Never has a 7 hour journey been so enjoyable!
Ghosting is a truly remarkable debut from the (Mont Blanc) pen of the fabulous Jennie Erdal.
Much fuss has been made in some parts of the media about the mysterious nature of the relationship between the flamboyant Naim Attalah and the intelligent and loyal Erdal.
However, the real beauty of the book is in how it describes Erdal's gifted and imaginative approach to their strange working life whilst raising three children in her homeland of Fife.
I will not be the only reader desperately awaiting Erdal's next book. The technically excellent writing is a joy to read and now that she will have the chance to explore her own ideas we are certain to be in for a series of treats in the future.
To conclude, Ghosting is a fascinating account for followers of the literary world and the lay person alike. It is a truly remarkable tale and should find its way onto everyone's Christmas list. Five stars!
