Hi Annabel: I was at the Humber School of Writing Workshop this past summer when you spoke and picked up The Golden Mean at the Bookstore sale. I LOVE THIS BOOK! I love this book as a writer (I had to read it a couple of times to really capture your subtle and beautiful craft) and as an avid reader. AND I love this book so much that I recommended it to my bookclub who are reading it now in preparation for discussion next Sunday (Nov 28)! I've already received some feedback (language, sex) and have some questions for you in prep for next Sunday as I am facilitating the discussion. Is this the best forum to communicate with you? if not, can you please redirect me?

Thanks - look forward to hearing from you!

Kathryn, are you on Facebook? Come find me there; a slightly less public forum for your questions! Thanks for your kind words -

Annabel
