The reviews for Burley Cross Postbox Theft have been very enthusiastic and, for once, seem to agree with the blurb.
The Sunday Telegraph commented 'A funny, heartbreaking book. From Love letters to suicide notes, her language vaults, somersaults and cartwheels across the page'.
I love this chunk of blurb - '...Burley Cross is a Cranford for today, albeit with a dose of Tamiflu, some dodgy sex therapy and a whiff of cheap smelling Vodka.'
Come in and read the rest.
(Author, Nicola Barker, has nine previous books to her name and one, 'Darkmans' was shortlisted for the 2007 Man Booker and Ondaatje prizes, but don't let that put you off her!)
