Aphrodite's Hat - A Box of Delights.

The Box of Delights by John Masefield was one of my favourite books, as a child, and though I've not read it for ages, I suspect it would still engage me.

I was reminded of it when I read the Guardian blurb on the jacket of Salley Vicker's latest paperback.

Aphrodite's Hat is already very much in fashion - could be the Ascot effect.

PS Ann Granger was on the phone today to see if all was ready for the signing on Saturday morning - it is.

Don't forget the special deal on the day plus cake and drinky-poos.


  1. Hi Guys,

    Hope that Saturday with Anne Granger is a huge success and you are very busy selling books.

    I have just finished reading an earlier Salley Vickers book 'The Other Side Of You' and thoroughly enjoyed it, so 'Aphrodite's Hat' looks like another for the wish list.


  2. Hi Yvonne,
    Yup, looking forward to meeting Ann and her husband tomorrow. All is ready. We'll have a few shots on here. I understand that Marilyn's cake will make a good photo.

    I've not tried Salley Vickers yet. Recent proofs have been The Invisible Ones - Stef Penney, Words in the Dust - Trent Reedy and Netherwood - Jane Sanderson, all excellent.
