MEDIA REVIEWS
Thomas has the mesmerising power of a great storyteller. * * Financial Times * *
Ingenious and original . . . A cracking good yarn, fizzing with intelligence. * * Philip Pullman on THE END OF MR Y * *
This book might just change your life. * * Independent on Sunday, on PopCo * *
A sprawling ode to curiosity and the life of the mind. * * Daily Telegraph, on The End of Mr Y * *
Whether you want to write or not, Monkeys with Typewriters is the kind of book that renews your enthusiasm for reading in general, a book that believes - and encourages its readers to believe - that great fiction matters * * Follow the Thread * *
Thomas. . . eschews the self-flagellating ethic of some courses by preaching tolerance for fancy prose style, and exhorts her readers to be ambitious and "ask important questions" with their fiction, an admirable stand -- Leo Benedictus * * Observer * *
