ally Vickers, it turns out, has been a psychoanalyst - no wonder I took to her writing! Her education and life-experience is broad and this has set her up well to be a writer. She is described as
“a novelist in the great English tradition of moral seriousness. Her characters suffer, they struggle to be true to both themselves and the promptings of the human heart. If you enjoy reading the work of Marilynne Robinson, Penelope Fitzgerald and James Salter you should be reading Vickers.” MICHAEL DIRDA Washington Post
f you haven’t read anything by Sally Vicker’s yet, start with “Miss Garnet’s Angel”. I myself have read it three times, and not always on aeroplanes!
I’d love to hear your experience of reading this book!
