Elizabeth Guster

It’s 2.26 am, couldn’t sleep, looked at your blog and read this post. For years I have loved the Virago Modern Classics (and their wonderful covers) and bought most of them as they came out in the 1980s. In these books I discovered Elizabeth Taylor and so many other writers. I’ve just ordered Writers as Readers, it’s a book I want to own rather than borrow from the library. Many thanks, Karen.

You're welcome, Elizabeth.
The piece immediately after Hilary Mantel on Angel is one by Elizabeth Taylor herself on 'setting a scene' - it's one of my most favourite so far.
Hope you managed to drop off eventually!

I've got a ticket to see Philip Hensher at the Book Festival. Looking forward to that as he's a favourite of mine.

Excellent.
