Kit de Waal's new book
Former Tindal Street member Kit has just published her first novel 'My Name is Leon' and has been well-reviewed in The Guardian this Saturday. This book is of special interest to Gaynor because it involves a child in foster care, which was once Gaynor's area of work. Kit is a brilliant writer who has also subsidised a creative writing bursary at Birkbeck for disadvantaged students.
