At Elizabeth Baines's

Today the party moves on after an Easter break during which the paperback Coward ate far too many chocolate eggs, to Elizabeth Baines blog.

I first met Elizabeth thanks to being published with Salt Modern Fiction, when I read her terrific short story collection ‘Balancing on the Edge of the World’, then her novel ‘Too Many Magpies’ - which has one of the loveliest covers... here it is, just because it is gorgeous. The book is rather good too! 

Elizabeth's  iconic feminist novel ‘The Birth Machine’ - first published by The Women’s Press in 1983, was reissued by Salt. You can read a review of ‘The Birth Machine’ on Bookmunch - which includes the rather nice quote: “a rock-hard satire and a very, very, very good read”

I am much enjoying my whiz round my mates' places!
