Review quote

Tireless anthologist Nicholas Royle resurrects an erstwhile Heinemann series, dormant since 1994. Lee Rourke's 'Emergency Exit' and Alan Beard's 'Staff Development' interrogate office life. Hilary Mantel's 'Comma' seems like a horror story, only to transform into something much sadder. Philip Langeskov's 'Notes on a Love Story' is Sebaldian in the way it shimmers between story, essay and documentary fragment. Let's hope this series becomes an annual fixture. -- Chris Power The Guardian

About Anna Mendelssohn

Anna Mendelssohn (1948-2009), who wrote under the name Grace Lake, was a British writer, poet and political activist. She came from a left-wing political family, was inspired by the Paris student risings in May 1968, and became a political radical in Britain. Mendelsohn was convicted of conspiracy to cause explosions as part of The Angry Brigade, a ruling she insisted was unjust. After her release she raised a family, resumed her education and devoted her life to art and to poetry. She grew somewhat isolated from the rest of society, but her friends saw to it that some of her work was published.
