An interview with Padrika Tarrant in The New Review

My interview with the inimitable Padrika Tarrant is in The New Review, Issue 20 (Winter/Spring 2009) on Scottish author Laura Hird’s website here.

Padrika’s novel, The Knife Drawer, is to be published later this year by Salt.

    Great interview Michelle. I’m now completely fascinated with Padrika’s work. I so want to read the story in which the pigeons discover fire!

    Nathan, first you need to buy yourself a copy of Broken Things. It’s one of my favourite books. You’ll love it. I promise. I will reimburse you if you don’t.

    What a great review… and so completely different from the interview I did with her on Bookmunch. Really thoughtful fascinating questions and illuminating answers. I so love Broken Things, and can’t wait to read the Knife Drawer, it sounds so good…

    I shall have to quiz you about doing interviews. I have done quite a few reviews, but Padrika was my first interviewee. I would love ot ask you for some tips…

    I’ll drop you a line …

    Great interview – she sounds like a unique person and writer. Some of her descriptions of the stories she writes remind me of Kelly Links’s stories, which I love. It’s great when zombies appear in their natural state, or when the hidden talents of animals appear on the page. Thanks, Michelle!

    Really interesting interview, Michelle – considered questions and equally thoughtful answers. Thank you!

    I wanted to let you know that my copy of Broken Things just arrived. I read ‘Darling’ last night. Wow, what an imagination.
