You’ve got the TV career of your dreams. Let the nightmare begin.
 
What happens at work has such an impact on our lives but there is very little fiction exploring this. Just this week MPs were debating the merits of a ban on requiring women to wear high heels at work. MPs said they were shocked at the stories about women’s dress codes, including the case of a woman who had been told to dye her hair blonde and a woman sent home from her temp job when she refused to wear high heels.

Laura Lake sat on the bed, staring into space. She did not move. Amy Bender had told her not to. To move, she had said, would compromise the integrity of the piece.

Where did you get the idea for the story?
 
In 1989, I was at university, and I read History. One day, I skipped class and attended a lecture featuring an American missionary who worked with the Korean-Japanese population in Japan. The missionary discussed the very troubled history of Koreans in Japan, which I’d known nothing about. He said that in the community that he served, there was a 13 year-old Korean-Japanese boy who had been bullied relentlessly because of his ethnic status. He climbed up to his apartment building roof and jumped to his death. The boy and his parents were born in Japan. I never forgot this story.

FLAMING June. Bloody typical. 
Albert Charles Kemp smiled at the bedraggled street party. The flags were soaked, the kids’ jelly only just edible. Despite the rain, this was a special day, a new Queen crowned and nothing would stop the celebrations. Nothing apart from the weather could rain on this parade.
East London may have been battered and bombed in the Blitz, but these people were brave, proud and full of love for the Royal Family. They had long memories too, remembering the new Queen Mother’s many trips to East London and how she’d helped lift morale through the bad times. Their affection for her and her family was overflowing, filling every street party with God Save the Queen, Rule Britannia and the exciting sense of a new beginning.

To the rescue comes Kate Young, author of the brilliant Little Library Cookbook which is published later this year. Kate's recipes are delightful and original recipes, inspired by the author's favourite works of fiction. Here are two recipes from the book, for Spanakopita and Chicken casserole.

It is with the greatest sadness that I am writing to say Christopher died on Saturday morning.  He had fought a mighty duel with cancer, as befitted an Olympic fencer, but in the end even his great spirit was quenched.  For Anthony and me, Christopher was a game-changer,
