Rothko's Red is a collection of ten stories, subtly linked by painting and art, about the lives of women: their hopes, fears, failures and challenges. They reveal the choices and destinies of characters from various backgrounds, embracing the harsh realities of desire, loss and ageing. Powerful, yet tender, psychologically intricate and emotionally perceptive, these stories examine the complex lives of modern women. Substantial, moving and beautifully written they call upon Sue Hubbard's wide ranging knowledge of and feel for art.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Sue Hubbard achieves the impossible for a woman writer - she manages to be feminine, with balls. Her stories are perceptive, sensitive, funny, sad and gutsy, and reach parts most women's writing doesn't, for me anyway. I've never read anything that so honestly documents the way women - especially older women - think and feel, and the difficulties men have with that, without apportioning blame. Rothko's Red deserves to be widely read.

-- Laura Gascoigne * Amazon.co.uk *

Evidence of the poet's gift for imagery - "the wind snaps at the washing, filling out the drying shirts like the bloated bodies of the drowned" - is in plentiful supply.
