This message about SNUG was sent recently by Seamus Shortt, a conservationist writer, whose informative story for all ages, including some beautiful illustrations by the author and photos of rare wildlife, has just come out. It’s called ‘Montevivo’: http://www.nhbs.com/montevivo_tefno_195053.html
As for SNUG he had the following to say (BWSBN is an acronym for the Boy Who Shall Be Nameless, one of the novel’s main characters):
A fine piece of satirical writing against the motherland! It was easy to read as good books should be. Original as I expected – I liked the way the chapters moved from one characters perspective to anothers and back again. Strange how BWSBN is the one who is so torn apart by the final events while Lucy is just matter of fact about things in the end… just the way people are.
