Lucy DeVito
‘The Sound of Things Falling’ may be a page turner, but it’s also a deep meditation on fate and death. Even in translation, the superb quality of Vasquez’s prose is evident, captured in Anne McLean’s idiomatic English version. All the novel’s characters are well imagined, original and rounded.
Edmund White
My writing is sort of ‘Sidney Sheldon meets Anne Tyler.’

I mean, first, almost all writers these days teach because they don’t make enough money publishing to live on, to support themselves – people like Tobias Wolff, Anne Beattie, Amy Hempel, Stuart Dybek; a lot of short story writers, for one thing.
Chad Harbach
Anne Boleyn isn’t a sympathetic character, but I like that she isn’t a people pleaser. She’s ambitious and manipulative, but she’s honest. I’m biased, but I don’t think a woman who has said ‘no’ to the King of England for six years would jump into bed with four of his best friends. She was a slick political mind.
Lydia Leonard
I was raised by an actress, and I watched all those women turn 60 and ask, Shouldn’t get face work? My mother and Anne Bancroft said, We’re not going to fall into that.

Lilla Crawford
Sure I do a lot of jokes about Anne Frank. But when you do those jokes, it makes people remember what happened to her. That process of bringing her story back doesn’t have to be a serious one. What I say is all nonsense, but it helps to keep her memory alive.
Joan Rivers
I read a lot of fantasy. I adored ‘Anne of Green Gables’. But my favourite books as a child were probably Laura Ingalls Wilder’s ‘Little House’ series, about a pioneer family in the mid-19th-century American west. I often thought of them as I was writing ‘The Last Runaway’.
Tracy Chevalier
