'It's not too late.'

11 June 2007

'Publishing one's first novel at 58 is both wonderful and terrifying. Terrifying, because I feel this sense of urgency now. I have so little writing time left, and so many things I want to write.' Her advice to literary late-starters: ' Keep going, keep going. It's not too late.'

Marina Lewycka, author of A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian whose second novel Two Caravans is just out, in the Sunday Times.
