Glasshopper: Double ‘Best Books’ Listing

Chichester Observer (Phil Hewitt, Dec 09)

Glasshopper, the debut novel from Chichester author Isabel Ashdown, has been listed in the Best Books of 2009 in both the London Evening Standard and the Observer Review.

Isabel said: “Since the launch in September we’ve had a hugely positive response to Glasshopper, with lots of great reviews in both the local and national press.  Following my appearance on the Simon Mayo show in October, the book sold out online overnight!

When Waterstone’s magazine recommended it for book groups, sales spiked again, and we are now on to our third print run in just three months.

I was absolutely delighted when I heard that it had been included in the Best Books of 2009 listings in both the Observer Review and the London Evening Standard.  It’s a great honour to be listed alongside so many wonderful writers.

I’ve really enjoyed all the book readings and interviews, but I’m now ready for a bit of quiet time.”
