In today's Guardian!

A great review of A Vengeful Longing by Cathi Unsworth.

As fans of Morris's previous A Gentle Axe will know, this author not only has the nerve to lift his lead character from Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment but also the skill to bring that distant Russia and its inhabitants to life, while drawing parallels with our own world.

A great start to the weekend!

Congratulations, Roger! A very apt comment. You bring Russia to life, I'm not kidding.

Well done, Roger! A great review - with a couple of nice snippable phrases, too. Thoroughly deserved. I'm sure this helps with the motivation for the current book too...

Best wishes
