Books By Claire Calman - Author
Claire Calman is the author of four novels, Love is a Four Letter Word, Lessons For a Sunday Father, I Like it Like That and now Cross My Heart and Hope to Die, all published by Black Swan.
Calman first decided to write a book when she discovered that it mainly involved making cups of tea and gazing out of the window. It was some time before a real writer friend pointed out that if she were to select an assortment of words and arrange them in some kind of order, this would speed up the process no end. Spurred on by this invaluable hint, she wrote Love is a Four Letter Word, a funny yet poignant story of love and loss.
Before she got into daydreaming full time, Calman spent several years working in womenâ€™s magazines, then in book publishing, editing gardening books. She is also a poet and broadcaster and has performed her pithy verse at live readings and on radio many times, including for BBC Radio Fourâ€™s Womanâ€™s Hour, Loose Ends, the comedy series Five Squeezy Pieces and for LBC. Her short stories have appeared in numerous magazines as well as in various anthologies, including Cheatinâ€™ Heart, the best-selling Girlsâ€™ Night In, Summer Magic and A Day in the Life.
Claire Calman lives in London with her husband, baby son, and an unbelievable amount of unfiled paperwork.
