Impossible! by Michelle Magorian, reviewed by Linda Buckley-Archer
In her latest offering, Impossible!, Magorian explores, with enormous relish, theatrical London in the 1960s. The novel is part theatre story, part adventure and part homage to Joan Littlewood, the trailblazing maverick director and founder of the Theatre Workshop.
Those who prefer their stories lean and concisely plotted might be frustrated by the novel’s length and pace. For others this will be an immersive read, featuring a wonderful cast of characters and great dialogue (Magorian knows how to deliver a line), in a beautifully written novel, full of incident and humour.
