Tania Kindersley was born and grew up in the Lambourn Valley near Newbury. Her fourth novel, Goodby, Johnny Thunders, won her thousands of fans through word of mouth. Tania Kindersley lives in Scotland and spends her time writing novels and journalism.Review:
'Kindersley writes convincingly of the delirium of falling in love, the refusal to accept the blindingly obvious, and the lengths to which seemingly sensible people go when an affair ends... Nancy's heights and depths are painfully real, and the evocation of a hot London summer is such that you can almost smell it' The Sunday Times 'The writing is fluent, snappy and contemporary, but the mood is elegiac and deeply romantic. Death, despair and self-destruction hover in the background and the novel brilliantly catches the insubstantiality of young, doomed love and that moment in life when nothing is so intense or so agonising ever again' Mail on Sunday 'There are no over-dramatic twists, no elaborate conceits. What it does have is real atmosphere, a portrait of a young woman living in Nineties London that rings absolutely true' Express 'Tania Kindersley captures the dreamy atmosphere of summer in the city, she knows how to keep the pages turning, and her portrait of the uncertainty of a certain kind of relationship is uncannily accurate' Irish Tatler 'Goodbye, Johnny Thunders lets you feel the rush of love and danger. Thrilling, poetic and sexy - a top class talent' Cosmopolitan 'Brilliantly captures the pain and desperation of fallling in love. Eloquently written and utterly believable, Goodbye, Johhny Thunders is a real triumph' Company 'Has the charm of young love, endless summers and tacky urban glamour' New Woman 'Eminently readable. Perfect for the beach' Pulp Fiction 'Irresistible...a heart-warming romance' Elle 'The book almost reads itself. The bittersweet story of wide-eyed Nancy...is wry, funny and immensely appealing' Big Issue 'A bittersweet, atmospheric love story' The Times 'Kindersley is at her most eloquent and fluent in this new novel about a young woman who falls for a bad buy. She strikes an elegiac and romantic mood which is never sentimental or twee' Yorkshire Post 'An annoyingly pleasurable read' Daily Telegraph
