The First Review of A Good Death

Most writers wait anxiously for reviews of their books. I’m one of them. As the publication date approached, I was in paroxysms of anxiety. Would A Good Death even be reviewed was my first worry, quickly followed by what would the reviewer say? I forced my husband to read the review of A Good Death in The Globe online on Friday, April 8th. He joked that I wouldn’t want to read it, and then told me the good news. Michael Harris, a writer I don’t know, read my book with intelligence and empathy and wrote about it favourably. Here’s a link to the review.
