Guardian Forgiven

Posted by sallyhinchcliffe on February 22, 2009

I didn’t mention it at the time – hey, this is my site, and I’ll leave things out if I want to – but the Guardian was not impressed with Out of a Clear Sky when it first came out (and no, I’m not giving it any more google juice by linking to it). But it seems that they like it much more as a paperback than as a hardback:

this confident and well-paced novel, which builds to its gruesome climax with leisurely menace

Much better. I shall uncancel my subscription…

More Tea?

Posted by sallyhinchcliffe on February 11, 2009

I wasn’t expecting any reviews for the paperback edition – as I’d done pretty well for reviews when the hardback came out – so it was a bonus to get a cracker in the Daily Mail on Friday:

Acutely observant, Hinchcliffe renders the intimacy and insecurities of relationships, especially those of lovers, sensitively and convincingly in her measured prose… her elegant writing and crisp dialogue ensure it’s enchanting and chilling

You’re probably wondering what those ellipses conceal (I always do) – it was a slight reservation about ‘endless cups of tea’. My next heroine will be drinking coffee, I think.
