After studying English Literature at University in the eighties, I wound up working in fashion for over twenty years. But I kept on reading all that time and find I have stored up a mental library of all the books I’ve consumed over the years. I am thrilled to have the chance now to go back to my bookish roots, rooting around for forgotten gems that Lume Books might introduce to a new audience, or for existing fans to re-read.
A book that left a deep impression: The Grass is Singing by Doris Lessing
My literary hero: Lucy Snowe of Villette by Charlotte Bronte. A study in courage, endurance and hope.
