Margaret is joined me on One 2 Three today for the first of a regular monthly book review slot here on Phoenix FM.

Ghostwritten.

The title refers to one of the book’s main characters, a writer who ‘ghostwrites’ accounts of other people’s lives.  Departing from her usual job of writing for actors, pop stars and other celebrities, she very reluctantly accepts a commission from an elderly client who, as a child, was caught up in the horrors of World War II.  It becomes clear that, in different ways, both the ‘ghostwriter’ and her latest client are haunted by traumatic and life-changing events from their past which they have kept secret from those around them.  The book explores whether it’s possible to lay the ghosts (and the guilt) of the past to rest.

Before the book review today we first found out a little about Margaret. You can listen to this, and Margaret’s review of Ghostwritten here –

Ghostwritten is by Isabel Wolff (paperback) and is published by HarperCollins at £7.99
