Another review

Sunday, March 24th, 2013

I have said it before: I do not believe those who claim that they never read reviews. There is an element of masochism in exposing oneself to them, and inevitably, only the bad ones linger. I am not sure how many good reviews Sonata for Miriam received around the world and I can’t quote any, but I certainly remember the blog that called it a ‘five star turkey’.

Slowly, the reviews for The Memory of Love  are beginning to appear. So far, so good. Here is one from BookBrowse

The music of The Memory of Love

Friday, March 1st, 2013

I was recently offered to contribute a list of music relevant to my latest novel, The Memory of Love, to the blog largehearted Boy. It was a bittersweet task. I was instantly back there, in the time when the novel was written. It wasn’t very long ago, yet in some ways, it now feels like it was in another life. And like much in life, watched in hindsight, it looks more appealing than what it felt like at the time…
