Book Review: Laughing at the Dark

Laughing at the Dark: A Memoir
by Barbara Else
Review by Bel

Else’s writing is crisp, honest and teeming with moments that women of all ages will relate to. Her descriptions of the writing process are particularly fascinating – not to mention the juicy titbits about NZ publishing! With her trademark wit and humour, Barbara poignantly describes the inspiring metamorphosis of a (so-called) ordinary life.
