Salley Vickers divides her time between London and Venice. Previously a university lecturer in English, when not writing she practices as a psychologist and still lectures widely on the connections between literature, psychology and religion.Review:
`"Dancing Backwards" is a delightful read - comic, sad, tender and utterly engrossing.' Lisa O'Kelly, Observer`Salley Vickers has a gift for making the most unlikely settings for fiction absolutely compelling...peerless story telling.' Independent`Packs a surprising emotional and intellectual punch....a wonderfully satisfying, richly rewarding journey for the reader.' The Times`This novel's central triumph is its portrait of a heroine steadily - and with immense hope - working through the dramas of her quietly difficult life...that is perhaps Vickers's most appealing characteristic: her essential optimism.' Sunday Telegraph`An elegant waltz through a personal history littered with betrayal and regret, crisply and carefully told.' Guardian'Graceful and absorbing ... nobody can dig down into the shrouded recesses of the human heart quite as forensically as [Vickers] does.' Elizabeth Buchan, Sunday Times
