‘BITTER GREENS DESERVES TO WIN THE BOOKER’
Self-proclaimed ‘book addict’ Simon Savidge of Savidge Reads has nominated Bitter Greens, by Kate Forsyth as one of the top 5 novels that he believes deserves to win the Booker.
‘You might laugh at me for suggesting a retelling, or reimagining, of the tale of Rapunzel – however the last laugh would be on you for missing out on a gem. Forsyth tells the tales of three women: Charlotte-Rose, a woman exiled from the court of Louis XIV; Selena, a muse to the Venetian artist Titian; and Margherita, a woman locked in a tower. It creates a truly spellbinding historical novel in a new, original and refreshing way.’
