On Reading Jilly Cooper

IMG_20180918_101705

I do not much like her novels.

They are crammed with characters like clowns jammed in jalopies.

But I like her epilogues.

They are lean and succinct, sinewy.

A bit like you, Bev says with a chuckle.

I may not have a novel in me but I have a draw full of epilogues.

And when push comes to shove I can pump out prologues at the drop of a hat.

It’s the in-between bits I’m not good at.

I could leave them to someone else.

Jilly Cooper, for instance.

  1. thank you. I did check the website but romance novels do not appeal to me but my close friend loves them and sometimes over a wine or two she reads me the saucy bits 🙂 I also feel the sexual politics displayed in them is somewhat outdated and at variance with the current climate. But her epilogues are good 🙂
