Fellow novelist Katharine McMahon on Rose Tremain...

If I'm asked who is my literary role model, it's Tremain. I love the fact that she's very experimental, and is always setting herself new challenges and new forms. Her historical writing is inspirational because of its authenticity, and the powerful story-telling. I've chosen The Road Home because I found it very absorbing, and a new direction for Tremain.

If you like Rose Tremain you might also like to read books by William Trevor, Margaret Forster and Alice Munro.
