A five-star review (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Woman-Who-Loved-Octopus-Saints/dp/1854114425/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/203-3705342-8742325?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1182863776&sr=8-1), at that!! And my editor denies all knowledge of it, so it might actually be real!!!!


Imogen Herrad has one of the most remarkable imaginations I have come across. She can do magic but she can do realism just as well. She puts you inside the head of a woman who falls passionately in love with an octopus (and while you're there, you know just why).

That makes coming back to real life and the day job (ack) just a little bit easier. I spent the last two weeks in Wales, walking over the hills and doing eight readings.

Is it OK to post photos in here?

This is where Ive been....

Wow, that's überraschen, Imogen! And also, what a cool idea; a woman who falls in love with an octopus!

Beautiful pics.

Every time the general everydayness of life come and gnaws at me, I look at that page and it cheers me up no end. http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/images/icons/icon6.gif


Oh, and I must confess that the octopus idea was jumpstarted by a short story of the wonderful Atima Rifaat. In her story, it's a woman who becomes amorously inclined towards a magical white snake (I'm sure there's an echo of the Arabian Nights in there somewhere). She was, seriuosly, one of the best writers ever.

I have since discovered that there's a whole sub-genre of Japanese erotica about women and their encouters with an *ahem* specially endowed octopus. Oooops. :D

It's like finding a $20 bill in your pants pockets when you're doing the laundry, isn't it? :)

Congratulations.
