Overview

Dining Out With Mr Lunch is a selection of more than 30 perceptive essays about writers such as Tim Winton, Richard Flanagan, Oliver Sacks, Roald Dahl, Fay Weldon, Brian Keenan and P.D. James. It is a lively exploration of people and their creative lives rather than a text of literary criticism. "This is a book for readers as much as for writers," says Waldren. Here is vanity, vulnerability, ambition, ego, regret, self-deprecation, hope, humour and sadness, all exposed with a deft hand, a warm heart and a deadly eye.
