A guest post for 4th Estate…

Some of you may have noticed that I have taken a mini hiatus from blogging… I’ve started an exciting but consuming new job and I’ve acquired a very naughty cat – two very different life events but both stressful and time-draining in their own ways!

Fear not, dear readers, for I haven’t stopped reading – I will be back shortly with a round-up piece and hope to resume normal posting from November onwards.

In the meantime, I was asked by the good people at 4th Estate if I would contribute a piece to their WOM4N month (which has been running for the whole of October), to which I happily agreed. Here is the result – My Top 5 Literary 20-Somethings - a piece inspired by a reading of Lena Dunham’s new book, Not That Kind of Girl.
