Just finished reading Jo Brand’s autobiography. An engaging read with a light touch. I’d like to have her as a friend: down to earth, compassionate and funny.
I also borrowed Jilly Cooper’s latest, Jump. I don’t think anything she writes now can rival, well, Rivals, which has to be one of the top five most touching and fun love stories. I felt the characters in Jump were a bit two-dimensional compared to some of her other creations. And there were lots of them.
But there’s a strong heart beating in all her books. I’d like her as a friend, too.
