The Diplomat’s Wife: Jay Martin on writing Vodka and Apple Juice
Hungerford Award. Read an extract from the book here. Shelving her corporate wardrobe and diving headlong into life as a diplomatic wife, she sets out to get to know quirky, difficult, fascinating Poland. Here, Martin details the process of turning her experiences into a book. For the next two years or so, I wrote many words on each of those themes. My writing time in that period consisted of my daily commute an hour each way on a bus during which I could generally write or so words. But I was also writing about things that had really happened, and I remembered them in the way that memory works — in bits and pieces, rather than a coherent whole.
