Reviews of The Research Club: An Anthology of New Writing
"'The fun in reading an anthology like this is in spotting the talent – predicting who'll become famous, who'll return to their lucrative high-powered careers and who'll become shoe salesmen. I won't name names but l've laid bets with every bookie in the city on which writers will make it big.' – Laura Marney"
Laura Marney graduated from the University of Glasgow’s creative writing programme in 2001 and now tutors on the course. She is the author of Nobody Loves a Ginger Baby, No Wonder I Take a Drink and Only Strange People Go to Church.
