The book I love most is ...

The Black Prince

by Iris Murdoch, because it has everything.

The book I'm reading right now is ... The K Handshape by Maureen Jennings in which the victim is a militant deaf woman who has deliberately engineered it so she will give birth to a deaf baby.


The book I'd like to read next is ... Murder, Now and Then by Jill McGown, featuring detectives Lloyd and Hill, who are wonderful characters.

The book that changed me is ... The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. I've always been obsessed with psychology and the bonkers-ness of human beings!

The book I wish I'd never read is ... Even the ones I've loathed have taught me something.
