I’ve done a few interviews over the past couple of weeks. ‘Published or not’ on Melbourne radio station 3CR had a chat with me about the metaphysics of From the wreck – it was the first time I’d heard someone else read the book out loud, and it sounded great!
Annabel Smith asked me about the five things that made the writer I am, and gave me a chance to talk about my parents, my friends, my husband and my publisher, as well as human rights in 1980s Latin America, oddly enough.
Maureen Eppen also got me to mention Uruguay – as well as Edith Campbell Berry and catastrophic fires – in a chat I had with her about my strange reading habits for her blog Shelf Awareness. Maureen also interviewed me for Good Reading, but you’ll have to buy the magazine to read it.
Reviews of From the wreck are popping up all over the internet, including at:
- Arts News – a review that looks at the loneliness at the heart of the book, and calls it ‘mysterious, tragic, and heartfelt in equal measure. An absolute must read.’
- The Book Muse
- Mostly Books bookstore in Adelaide
- Blue Wolf Reviews
- Readings bookstore in Melbourne
Why not come along to the launch on Tuesday 21 March at 7pm at the Sun Bookshop in Yarraville?
