Recently, Aardvark Bureau asked me ten questions about The Hope Fault, and my reading and writing life. You can read the Q&A here.
I talk about a few favourite authors and books in the Q&A: Jenny Ackland’s marvellous novels The Secret Son and Little Gods; Mimi Pond’s graphic novels/memoirs Over Easy and The Customer is Always Wrong; Carol Shields’ 1992 novel The Republic of Love (here’s a marvellous 1992 review in the NY Times); and Deborah Levy’s Booker-shortlisted 2011 novel Swimming Home.
I also mention the Jonathan Demme film Rachel Getting Married. I’ve written before about the influence of that film on the writing of The Hope Fault.
