" I have two diaries now. The first is the red hardback Daily Reminder of the kind I've been writing in since 1994, when we had Florian. You gave me the first book in order to record my beginning year as a mother. It was very sweet of you. I have written in a book like it ever since. They are hidden in the bottom drawer of my office covered with ribbons and wrapping paper. The latest, the one that interests you at present, is kept in the very back of the file cabinet containing old bank statements, checks left over from defunct accounts, the things we vow to shred every year and end up stuffing into files. After quite a lot of searching, I expect, you have found my red diary. You have been reading it in order to discover whether I am deceiving you.
The second diary, what you might call my real diary, is the one I am writing in now."
Would you keep reading?
Other excellent books by this author include: The Plague of Doves, and her newest book, The Round House.
