I am at present reading and enjoying her short stories.
As well as being a novelist, she is famous for the long-standing feud with her sister ( a novelist too ) over the alleged appropriation of a family tea-set in one of her novels.
She is also famous for being anti-American. " My anti-Americanism has become almost uncontrollable. It has possessed me, like a disease. It rises up in my throat like acid reflux, that fashionable American sickness. I now loathe the USA and what it has done to Iraq and the rest of the helpless world."
I also suffer from acid-reflux.
Her latest book "Palm Sunday" comes out today....
