Soap Novel begins on Monday 4th January 2016.
“My name is Joplin. Don’t laugh, I don’t find it in the least bit funny. If anyone other than my Dad calls me Joplin they risk getting a slap. I like Jo. Or, I should say, I tolerate Jo. Jo is better than ‘lin anyway, which people would think was ‘Lynne’. And, for a woman like me, I think ‘Lynne’ would be worse than Joplin. Lynne is a nice, married mother-of-two who lives in a nice town in a modest house. Lynne works as a GP’s receptionist, doesn’t she? I am a twenty-nine year old lesbian journalist living in a flat in Camberwell that I never clean . It has to be Jo really, doesn’t it.”
