"Satire is meant to be much more vigorous and vehement, the suggestion being that you actually want to change reality—you're agitating for change." A paperback edition of the British novelist's satiric novel, Lionel Asbo: State of England, was published by Vintage last month.

Russell shares how she found her agent Denise Shannon in the July/August issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.
