What is Sarah Salway reading?

After Sarah Salway's "top ten list of books about unlikely friendships" caught my eye, I got in touch with her to find out what she has been reading.

She replied with an interesting report that included one poetry collection: Susan Wicks' latest book, De-Iced.

Read on to see what other books have recently captured Salway's attention.

Sarah Salway has published numerous short stories, as well as winning several writing competitions. Her first novel Something Beginning With, an extremely funny and sad story of love, self-discovery and the alphabet, was published in 2004 by Bloomsbury in the UK and Ballantine in the US (as The ABCs of Love), and has been translated into many languages. Her latest novel is Tell Me Everything.

Learn more about Salway's writing -- and read some of her poetry and journalism -- at her website and at her blog, Sarah's Writing Journal.
