'Your transposing of my character into the characters in the book is simply amazing.' - CATHERINE COOKSON This remarkable book will be welcomed by the millions of readers who know know and love Catherine Cookson. Catherine Cookson's first book, KATE HANNIGAN, was published in 1950, when she was forty-four. It had been accepted by the first publisher to whom it had been submitted. Kate Hannigan's world, a place of darkness, was the same nightmare world into which her creator had herself been born on Tyneside. Catherine was exorcising her own demons. Since then, books have followed at an incredible rate, all of them huge bestsellers. Here, Piers Dudgeon unlocks Catherine's complex character, using her many books as a key, and explores with Catherine herself the tortured drama of her personal life and its resolution.

I bought this book believing that I would in some way know Catherine more intimately after reading most of her novels. I came away with an understanding of what her life was like and I greatly appreciated that aspect of the book. I was dissapointed in that a lot of it went back and forth between her life and the characters she wrote about. I felt as if I were traveling down a long bumpy road and then backing up at times. It could have been written much better in my opinion.
