From The Attic II: Pat Murphy

Pat Murphy says her favourite bird is the mockingbird because ‘it never sings the same song twice.’  So far the same can be said of Murphy herself.  Some writers find a genre seam and mine it successfully (and some exhaust it sooner than they realise) but Pat Murphy has spent her career questing around the edges […]
