The Leaf Bookshop interview with R.W.R. McDonald about his books: ‘The Nancys‘ released in 2019 and ‘Nancy Business‘ to be released in June this year, was enormous fun! These are quirky whodunnits that are full of heart. Love them!

NANCY BUSINESS Review: Despite the sombre beginning and ongoing themes of dealing with grief and loss, McDonald once again strikes a great balance of light and dark. He adeptly mixes humour, charm, and serious issues. NANCY BUSINESS is at times hilarious, at times heartfelt as McDonald conducts a highwire act in terms of nailing a marvellous tone. There’s grin-inducing moments and meditations on grief, classic mystery elements and coming-of-age too. It’s a delightful, charming concoction that tickles the brain and heart.

Like its predecessor, R.W.R. McDonald’s “Nancy Business” is a masterclass in tonal balance: it’s one part mystery, another part family drama, and these elements are glazed in a riotous celebration of all things camp and queer.
