Reviews

She writes like an angel wielding a scalpel, dissecting her characters with sublime, sharp-edged prose - GuardianHer prose is flawlessly seductive and comic, confidently witty and sensual - Independent on SundayShena Mackay notices a London that passes most writers by . . . Her London is not a convenient backdrop - it is the capital itself, vividly and freshly set down in glancing detail - IndependentA rich feast to be enjoyed page by page as Mackay, in often dazzling prose, describes the hilarious antics of bibulous writers or, with moving lyricism, those 'surprised by joy' - Kirkus
