Pickle Me This Reviews Roost
Kerry Clare at Pickle Me This talks about Ali Bryan’s debut novel Roost and about laughing out loud in the bathtub.
“It’s a hard (and rare) balance to strike, a book that is as funny as it is smart, and I find this can be particularly the case with books by and about women, partly because critics tend to judge the concerns of womanhood as insubstantial anyway and also because writers do have a tendency to bring forth humour at the expense of their female protagonist’s strength and intelligence–see “And the trouble(?) with comic heroines”. But Ali Bryan gets it right in Roost, her first novel.” Read the review.
