Reading Notes

On p. 28 of Miss Thing – not quite into it yet. Written as  series of notes and autobiographical sketches. The story so far – Andromeda’s feminist Professor mother has committed suicide and her Grandmother has moved into their apartment; across the courtyard in the opposite apartment is Sam, failed writer. They notice each other while their lives spin on. So far, it’s a bit contrived although the characters are coming into being. Main problem is that the different ‘voices’ in the different autobiographical pieces are all the same; same syntax etc. Surely a teenager and thirty-something would have different vocabulary and references?
