A Receiver of Stolen Words by Giselle Thompson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It's really rare to get 5 stars from me these days, but Giselle has managed. Obviously, there is a link as she has studied the Creative Module that I am currently doing, but it goes beyond just that.
She has a really fluid and lovely voice that is very recognisable, and is a mistress of the short story (a skill I envy). However within each of her pieces there are subtle variations in her style that make them a joy to read.
I'm a regular reader of her blog, and enjoyed the book that she collaborated on with 9 others, 'Circ'. Even though there were so many it was easy to distinguish talents from the other talented authors.
This is highly recommended if you are studying Creative Writing, or just enjoy differently told and well researched literature.
You can purchase a copy HERE, which is an absolute snip at £1.83; she is definitely selling herself short.
