Sarah Broadhurst's view...
An accomplished and sensitive writer but of all her lovely books I don’t think she has written another as good as this, her first. It’s about an irritating city girl who takes to the backpackers’ trail and slowly has her narrow-mindedness squeezed out of her. The book changes gear once she believes she has a serial killer on her tail.
Backpack by Emily Barr
Tansy plans to go travelling with her boyfriend after her alcoholic mother dies. At the last minute he bows out and she finds herself drunk and coked-up - as ever - on a plane to Vietnam and wondering why. Will she return to London skinny, tanned and wise, as planned?
