Mary Talbot and Kate Charlesworth have their guest Director's Commentary on Sally Heathcote: Suffragette up on the Forbidden Planet blog - for those not familiar with that, it's an occasional feature they run where instead of one of them doing review or interview the spot is given to the creators to talk about their new work in their own words. Nice way to give readers some insight into interesting new work and hopefully also get the book onto their reading radar.
