The author was a guest on Morning Live, where she chatted about the book.
Schimmel insists that while pieces of her characters are taken from her own life and those of people she knows, ultimately: ‘I am none of them! I write only fiction … it’s bits and pieces … I think all the characters are people I know, but not people I know at all!’
