"I was the first sale Miss Gish made at the Secret Vintage Fair in Colchester back at Easter… ‘I am a Muse’ appealed to my sense of drama and called out to my curiosity. My intention was to read and write a review pretty quickly. But, nothing could have prepared me for the emotional journey I was about to undertake!
Miss Gish has managed to find the pure essence of Alda Thunberg’s grief and distress and it was painful to read at times - this is no criticism but the highest form of praise! The journey’s of self exploration that both women undertake is beautifully related and wholly believable. Miss Gish’s portrayal of the intensity of the relationship between artist and muse is wonderfully portrayed and I started to care about these characters and what happens to them; on several occasions finding myself either laughing or crying.
No 'Chic Lit' this book, but a clever and thought provoking exploration of the nature of dependency and the unseen cost of intense creativity."
