Elsie, I think this is wonderful.  Beautifully observed and beautifully controlled, with all the details showing us these lives, the rhythm of friendship. Warm and true, with that touch of wryness.

Beautifully controlled, with the richness of the detail enabling the reader to see, hear and taste the scene.  Sharp and lyrical at the same time.

There may be light at the end of the tunnel, if you've seen Tony's post about a possible way forward.  Don't give up on this site just yet!

Really exciting chapter.  The paragraph beginning 'She was feeling dizzy...' is particularly effective - there was something horrific in the image of Johnson's 'pale face' just staring at her.  I admire the way you are racking up the action while...

I​ found this really moving, Jean.  The careful and restrained way Toyo tries to maintain decency and a sense of normality in such an impossible situation, and the powerlessness of all the internees, is beautifully drawn.  I'm really enjoying...

It does sound  easy, but it never is.  Loved the line 'The stretcher bearers are silently carrying the dead away. Reason lost another battle last night.'  I hope the narrator finds a way through.

Posted on Mon, 29 Aug 2016

I really like the way this explodes the popular view that people on the autistic spectrum 'don't feel' - to begin to understand how  or what they feel needs others to consider a totally different way of seeing the world.  The lack of support...
