One to Watch

What a lovely surprise. Though Thursday morning here in Australia, I logged on to Authonomy this morning to find that The Songs of All Poets has been selected as this week’s ‘One to Watch Wednesday’ on the blog.

Here is a little of the review by a HarperCollins UK editor:

I’ve really enjoyed what I’ve read so far. There is enough detail in the descriptions of life in Calcutta to transport you there, but it’s never gratuitous. Flora is a very likeable protagonist, and one with whom the reader easily sympathises. Rabindranath is thoughtful, and intelligent, as you would expect him to be, but is subtly portrayed. The rigid social structure in both countries means the pair’s destinies are surely mapped out, but you get the sense they will both push against this, carving their own path.
