A writer who is not afraid to address the so-called ordinary lives of real human beings.
Deeply – sometimes erotically – charged. The writing soaks up the world, and thrills to the beauty of it…Katherine Bedford – so ordinary and so passionate – is a heroine to treasure
On Ghost Moth
A delicate and unusual endeavour to write about ordinary people in a way that is so realistic that it almost reads like memoir. The passages evoking Katherine’s children are outstanding. The meditations on maternal and marital love verge on the profound. And the ending will bring a lump to your throat."– Claire Kilroy
