S0 I had my first review on Goodreads. Here. Can’t help noticing that the reviewer writes beautifully!
‘Killing Hapless Ally’ is an intriguing and powerful novel which explores one woman’s quest for freedom from the overpowering clutches of depression and dislocation. With dark humour, sprightly wit and insight the author follows Alison’s twisting and often frightening path towards positive mental wellbeing and a release from fear and self-loathing. The book is both touching and savage and is imbued with exquisite description throughout. I think this story will appeal to many people; it is definitely a ‘page turner’ and one which will make you laugh (a lot) and cry. I greatly enjoyed reading it and will definitely be recommending it to my friends….
If you pop over to Goodreads (press the Goodreads button) you’ll see I’ve answered a few questions and that there’s a book giveaway scheduled for the end of the month.
Tonight I am going to Reasons to Stay Alive with Matt Haig at Toppings’ Bookshop in Bath. Next week, I am making a short film for http://www.healthizmo.com and for the well-being site for AXA PPP; you’ll be able to view it on their youtube channel and read the accompanying text. I am talking about anxiety – and how I have managed it, kid up.
