Autobiography: general

Honest, self-exposing... a candid exploration of the vulnerability of middle-age, as well as a fairly brutal examination of the human heart and its endless capacity to be broken... I want to stick up for this book. It is astoundingly brave. It is funny. It speeds along. It has magic at its heart - that indefinable sliver of human warmth and hope that all the best, most searching memoirs seem to have. Moreover, Roffey's somehow irrepressible willingness to share begins to seem generous, infectious even. As she finally manages to let go of her ex and view their intense, yet largely platonic, love affair as something to celebrate rather than regret, I found myself knocked off course in a rather moving and indescribable way... About the Author Monique Roffey was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad, and educated in the UK. Since then she has worked as a Centre Director for the Arvon foundation and has held the post of Royal Literary Fund Fellow at Sussex, Chichester and Greenwich universities. She is the author of the highly acclaimed novels sun dog, and The White Woman on the Green Bicycle, which was shortlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction 20101, and the Encore Award 2011.
