A writer friend has just emailed me to tell me she's read Zuzu's Petals, and she's sent me a full- page critique. Fantastic!

The best thing is that she says I made her cry, which apparently is very unusual. I was interested that it wasn't the father's death that upset her, but a stage in the romantic storyline. She gives me the page number. It takes a writer to tell another writer at which page they started to snivel and at which page they got out their hankie. Writers need to know these things.

But which line was it, Jan?
