'The Blank Wall was a revelation to me: a rather quiet, un-hysterical novel about a respectable, suburban woman who when we first meet her has no voice of her own, or any real sense of her identity and value. Her husband and her children tell her who she is and what to do, what to think. And then, as events unfold, she falls into this different place inside her where she discovers her courage, her fierceness, her hidden desires. It's about how ordinary life is scary; about how the self that the world sees and the self that crouches under the surface are so different.'
