My Interview with Kit de Waal in The Irish Times

You can read my interview with author Kit de Waal in The Irish Times today.

“When I arrive at Kit de Waal’s she’s in her writing cabin in the back garden of her house in Leamington. De Waal gets a kick out of using the no-frills Leamington while the locals insist on its full title:Royal Leamington Spa. No surprise, really, as though outwardly seeming to have fallen far from the tree in this wealthy, white, middle-England town, this author holds tightly to her roots; Brummie, Irish, West Indian and working class.”

Read the full interview on their site.

Kit’s new novel is the Irish Book Club choice for this month.
