Last week I asked the author about what she was reading. Purser's reply:
I belong to a book club - around twelve of us turn up in the Reading Room (truly a small building erected about a hundred years ago in our tiny village, in an effort to educate the poor and neglected members of the parish}. We meet once a month, and this is about right for me to read one book a month. This month we have Fludd, by Hilary Mantel, a deliciously creepy read. Into churchy matters - dark corners of the mind - comes Fludd, a strange character who comes and goes at will, sometimes without apparently taking steps to appear or disappear. Frustrated women, corrupt clergy, all described with an accurate pen. And a plot that keeps the reader`s interest until the end - and then for longer!Visit Ann Purser's website.
In spite of writing crime novels, I love to read them, and my favourite, Michael Gilbert, is no longer with us, but can still be found on dusty library shelves.
