LoveReading Says

April 2011 Guest Editor Lesley Lokko on Douglas Kennedy...

The blurb on the back (or is it the front?) of his novels says ‘no one does stylish, damaged women better.’ How true. When I’m in the mood for something I cannot put down, Kennedy never lets me down. They’re all uniformly good – The Big Picture, The Pursuit of Happiness, The State of the Union and the one I’ve just stayed up all night reading, Leaving the World. It’s rare to read a man who’s got such a handle on women but Kennedy scarcely puts a foot wrong. It’s a bit like watching The Office...scarily familiar, scarily good and often cringe-worthy. We can all remember making that last, desperate phone call when we really, really shouldn’t. What Not To Do, not Wear.
