Esther Freud trained as an actress before writing her first novel HIDEOUS KINKY, shortlisted for the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize and made into a feature film starring Kate Winslet. Her novels have been translated into thirteen languages.Review:
"* 'A beautiful book, savage and tender by turns. Nobody else can write this well about the bravery and the sad wisdom of children. In a culture which dins with brashness and self-advertisement, attending to Esther Freud's still, truthful voice becomes not only a pleasure but a necessity' Jonathan Coe"
