Reviews by Laura Oosterbeek:
An easy paperback of original essays, interviews, stories, poetry, and comics that reminded me of the love that leaks like light into my life.
This is a darkly funny musing on the story of a woman who chose not to disclose her entire story. She chose not to be a possession.
This is a true reflection of what it feels like to be a millennial. Frances is flawed, intelligent, hypocritical, narcissistic, emotional and creative.
In the depths of the dark Winter, the The Luminaries allowed me to spend time on the shores of New Zealand’s wild coast - home.
Being difficult is an insult, and a command to disappear. But being difficult is our main weapon, a difficult woman is one who should be celebrated.
Sex opens wounds and brings their dark pasts into harsh and blinding light. It’s a love story that is purely original and fresh.
