Many, many thanks Sarah for posting this. Maurice Gee is a wonderful novelist, but I confess I only discovered him when my NZ publisher sent me copies of some of his books - inc. Plumb and Blind Sight. Why isn't he better known over here? He was published by Faber in the 1970s. It seems to me that a lot of good writing ends up not so much falling by the wayside, as becoming roadkill!Kathleen Jones
I loved this animation, and agree with Kathleen about Maurice Gee - Plumb really drew me in and he has written some excellent children's science fiction too.A pity our broadband in NZ is so sucky as this keeps starting and stopping when I play it - I will have to try again at a less busy time of day and see if our broadband is faster.
Isn't it great? And I've just ordered Maurice Gee's Plumb - have to confess he wasn't on my radar before so double happy. Frightening how many novelists do somehow become roadkill (she says bitterly!)
How wonderful is that? Loved it.
