Kort biografi
MARGARET DRABBLE is the author of The Sea Lady, The Seven Sisters, The Peppered Moth, and The Needle's Eye, among other novels. For her contributions to contemporary English literature, she was made a Dame of the British Empire in 2008.

Drabble has famously been engaged in a long-running feud with her novelist sister, A.S. Byatt, over the alleged appropriation of a family tea-set in one of her novels. The pair seldom see each other and each does not read the books of the other.

This was a hard book to get into, but the story (in the end) was nice.

I wanted to like this book. It's an interesting idea: memoir, interleaved with a history of the jigsaw and related pastimes. A shared love of jigsaws drew Drabble closer to her great-aunt Phyllis.

Each part of the book is interesting in its own right: the story of Phyllis and Margaret, and their family; the discursive discussions on jigsaw history, and other pursuits that seem to tick some of the same boxes - mosaic making for instance. But it feels a lot longer than it should have been, as though Drabble hasn't been able to bear to edit out any nugget from her research.

I was determined to reach the end, and was relieved when I finally did.

I read to page 50 and it just wasn't holding my attention, so I tossed it.
