1 It Seems Mother Teresa Was a Mother Teresa After All Tony Thompson , 2017 single work essay
— Appears in: Eureka Street , 13 August vol. 27 no. 16 2017; (p. 6-8)

'I kept getting lost in Kolkata. North and south were somehow inverted in my head and I had to consciously avoid going the wrong way every time I stepped out of my hotel. But I want to start with Christopher Hitchens, a writer that I revere and a public figure whose death I continue to mourn. I loved his prose even when I didn't agree with him and I admired his honesty. He was, for me, a teacher who taught me to ignore the media's tired narratives and look at each situation on its own merits. Among his many subjects, some might say targets, was Mother Teresa.

'There is a monster within us all – it’s how you choose to use it that counts.

'Mary’s life began in shadow. Unwanted and overlooked, her desire was to make something of her existence. So how would meeting a young poet change her path forever? Scandal. Passion. Desire. Mary’s choices were clear – but would she ever be free of her loneliness? Tony Thompson’s enthralling novel explores Mary Shelley’s early life and the famous summer she spent with Percy Shelley, Lord Byron, John Polidori and her stepsister Claire Clairmont, which inspired her iconic novel Frankenstein.' (Publication summary)

'This is the book for anyone who has ever been forced to study a Shakespeare play. It is Shakespeare in context; sexy, dangerous and a bit scary. Being smart and a little sneaky comes naturally to William Shakespeare - and he is about to make it bigger than he ever dreamed possible. Kids will be fascinated by 'mob football', 'bear baiting' and the gruesome details of Elizabethean London. They will engage with Shakespeare's plays on a whole new level. ' (Publication summary)
