3 thoughts on “Alice Jolly: Mary Ann Sate, Imbecile

  1. After reading Alice Jolly’s ‘Dead Babies and Seaside Towns’, I felt I had come across the most expertly crafted work of non-fiction possibly ever written on the subject of motherhood. I am looking forward to reading this as Alice Jolly is surely a writing genius.


  2. Thank you, another recommendation of yours that I very much enjoyed but would never have heard of otherwise.
    I wasn’t sure what I thought of the brief lines at first but soon got into the swing of it and found that it worked well and drew me into the story. I found the setting particularly relevant as I live in Gloucestershire but knew nothing about that part of Stroud’s history at all so that was all very interesting. I’d managed to pick the book up from the library just before it shut so was grateful I had it to keep me going as part of my lockdown reading supplies.
