Not only is it a brilliant biography to read, occasionally laugh out loud, it’s a refreshing approach that cuts through all the rules and regulations that hem you in when you are simply trying to GET IT DOWN! Available from GOMA library or any other Glasgow library if you are a member. Probably out of print now.’ FWS Member Lowri Potts
