25 May 2009 – from Julie and Barry when they moved away

I picked this out of the bags as a Lodge I didn’t know about.  It’s a novella based on a play Lodge wrote about the pitfalls of celebrity.  Working well as a long short story, we meet two authors, one out there and successful, one practically a hermit, the woman they both once loved, now married to one of them, and a celebrity interviewer known for stitching up her victims.  When they try to play a trick on her, will it all backfire?

Really nicely written (of course) and with a great little storyline – very good and it is in book form so I’ll count it as a full book read!
