    I have a natural aversion to any fiction written about writers or the publishing world. Ironically this book highlights how sometimes books are chosen for big media hype and huge marketing campaigns and the media hype around this book was huge! So I was already on a back foot with it, publishers and reviewers posting everywhere about it and it featuring on the front page of various trade magazines and websites. So with those confessed prejudices in place I was ready to be scathing. But actually there’s a lot in the story to keep you hooked throughout. Enough for this reader / Bookseller anyway. We all know this kind of thing (tokenism, institutional racism, cancelling and social media slaughter) goes on but to see it displayed from the eyes of someone who doesn’t see it herself is an interesting angle. Worthy of ALL the hype? I’m not sure, but definitely a worthy read and one you take away with you to think about long after you’ve finished it.
