LoveReading Says

Douglas Kennedy’s strength is his uncanny ability to create the most compelling of female characters in his books and here in A Special Relationship, he shows that strength and aptitude to mind blowing affect. The narrator Sally is an American journalist, based in London, who will have you utterly transfixed, take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions, and the pace of the story is almost thriller-like at times. It’s all there: love, hate, destiny, triumph, and tragedy but above all good writing.


September 2009 Guest Editor Emily Barr on A Special Relationship by DOUGLAS KENNEDY

I picked up A Special Relationship on my way to a writers’ retreat a few years ago and consequently had to be much sterner with myself than I had expected about actually getting on with my own writing. Kennedy is amazingly skilled at drawing the reader in and keeping them turning the pages.
