I stayed up until 2 o’clock on Sunday morning reading The Blue Handbag (Snowbooks, August 2009), Fiona Robyn’s second novel. Fiona is an accomplished writer with a deep understanding of human nature. Her evocative descriptions of the natural world and English flora are among the best I’ve read – and she says I can adopt Pickles (Leonard’s dog).
Fiona has started a blog, 100 Readers, which will feature interviews with 100 readers of The Blue Handbag. If you check in at 100 Readers, you’ll be able to follow her novel as it makes its way in the world. I’m privileged to be the first reader Fiona interviews.
