Claudine Cullimore

b. Waterford; lived in France and Belgium in child-care (‘nanny’); now residing in Winchester, England; author of Lola Comes Home (Penguin 2000), 465pp., a first novel.

Kathy Cremin, interview, The Irish Times (24 March 2001), relates that Cullimore, returning from ten years nannying in Brussel, feels is acutely conscious of her stunted education where everyone is now professional. Remarks that Lola Comes Home is not a ‘chick novel’ though ‘all the ingredients are there’. Penguin is said to be ‘making much of her fresh, funny Irish voice for the 18-30 market’.
