Lisa Allardice interviews Sarah Waters

at the Guardian. I bought The Night Watch in one of those book-spending-sprees this spring but it then suffered from the mad library-book push; I must move it to the top of the TBR pile, I am curious among other things as to how this Orange Prize will go & it is always enjoyable to have an informed opinion. I've actually only read Mantel and Zadie Smith on that list, but in my (regular old not-informed) opinion it should really be between Mantel and Waters this time round. It will be a great injustice if Zadie Smith wins.

  1. Oh you MUST read The Accidental - it's the book that got me the RH job, actually, and I adored it. Not sure if you'll like it, but it's extremely provocative. And a fast read too.
