Recent comments on the book
‘The writing is sublime and the
observation astonishingly rich, Heaney-esque even. I hope it will be submitted
for literary awards.’
Richard Meier, poet, author of Misadventure, & winner of Picador’s Poetry Award 2010
‘I’ve just finished 'Pieces of Molly', and have read it with great enjoyment and admiration. It's so well written, not just at the level of the sentences, but in the way the perspective shifts. It's constantly engaging. It's also very evocative for me. Having grown up in the same period, though in a different setting (London suburbs), so much of what she describes is familiar - both the world of things, and the way relationships were handled (by silence).
It really ought to have a mainstream publisher, so that it gets a higher profile.’
Carole Satyamurti is a poet and sociologist, who lives and works in London.
