Pictures of Susan Hill signing books after last night's talk at The Methodist Church. We had a great evening - Susan perched against the altar and spoke very fluently and informally about her year of tracking down books and the memories and portions of her life that the books recalled. Someone asked her about 'the writing process' - whether she planned, how she wrote. It was refreshing to hear that she just writes, without much of a plan.
I first read Strange Meeting as a teenager and am still amazed by how someone of under thirty could possibly have written so convincingly about the First World War.
