I really liked Life Mask! I've enjoyed all of Donoghue's books that I've read. My real-life book club read A Round-Heeled Woman a few years ago. And I love your Scottish writers list - I think I'll be getting some ideas from you...

Glad to share the ideas, I'm looking forward to reading this list, and I'm glad you liked Life Mask, I've heard mixed things.
