CHRISTINA PATTERSON – on what you find when you look back on life.
How do you write a story which shows that it’s human love that counts? Maybe live a tricky life full of trials which prove it. And that is what you might discover when you go through the drawers of your own family life, when you see the letters home, and when you revisit your childhood.
In her latest book, Outside, the Sky is Blue: a family memoir, former Director of the Poetry Society, columnist, broadcaster, and reviewer, Christina Patterson takes a close look at life past and present.
