    The Telegraph newspaper has it thus: "Awful author addicted to alliteration achieves acclaim again". Fabulous headline! Amanda McKittrick Ros may have been laughed at by the Inklings ("a group of Oxford dons including Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien who met from the 1930s to 1950s"), but the Celebrate Literary Belfast will be celebrating the "World's Worst Novelist" and her long-forgotten and terrible drivel on the 26th September: "Festival-goers will be introduced to the joys of Irene Iddesleigh, her first novel — a melodrama of marriage doomed by unrequited love. In it, Ros observes that 'the trials of a tortured throng are naught when weighed in the balance of future anticipations'."
