House of Fiction a “moving and captivating memoir”

Sunday Herald (Glasgow) Review

A short but very nice review of the UK edition of House of Fiction from Glasgow’s Sunday Herald on Sunday, 3rd May 2014:

Perhaps fiction writers are best placed to create fictions out of their own worlds, but as Susan Swingler’s moving and captivating memoir shows, the damage wreaked can be huge. When her father, Leonard, left her mother to be with Elizabeth Jolley, one of Australia’s foremost writers, it was the least of the family deceptions.
