Ten Things In Common

| No Comments

Orion's summer party took place last week, at its usual venue, the Oktober Gallery in Holborn with (contrary to the dire promise of canapes on the invitation) its usual splendid spread. The bad weather meant that the courtyard was out of bounds, and I only took a few photos. Actually the food was partly to blame. I kept returning to the full rounds of cheeses and juggling a large dslr with paper plate and wineglass proved a little trickier than with a point-and-shoot. As a consequence many of the authors who were present didn't get snapped by me on this occasion, including Francesca Simon and Caroline Lawrence. But scroll down to discover 10 things that these two authors have in common.

1. are the same age
2. are both Jewish
3. have dark frizzy hair
4. grew up in southern California surrounded by leggy blondes
5. came to England to study dead languages at Oxbridge*
6. married Englishmen
7. had one son
8. started writing after their sons' birth
9. are published by Orion
10. both had books adapted for televsion in the past 12 months

*Francesca studied Older Middle English at Oxford, Caroline studied Greek and Latin at Cambridge
