    Rita is a fascinating author. She makes for interesting discussions in my reading group because her political opinions are so strong that they tend to outshine her literary accomplishments. We spend a lot of time arguing about the best way to interpret her work.

    But that is why we keep reading her books. They encourage debate. Regardless of what you think of her political stance, you cannot deny the fact that she keeps things interesting.

    Admittedly, the first book we read (Wish You Were Here) was a little off-putting for me because it had a lot of unnecessary swearing. But I’m glad I stuck with her.
