Eurovision Russian Grannies – life mirrors fiction…

Since I hadn’t seen Buranovskiye Babushki – the Eurovision Russian Grannies – until the live final on Saturday (yes, I’ve been busy being creative), it was the first chance I had to be overwhelmingly reminded of Laurie Graham’s excellent novel ‘Life According to Lubka’.

Life so often imitates fiction (as opposed to the other way around) and in this case I really think it deserves a mention. Laurie Graham is just about my all-time favourite author – I’m reading her excellent ‘At Sea’ at the moment – but for anyone who hasn’t yet discovered her original, quirky and delightful brand of fiction, do so now!
