I recently did an interview with Michael Barron of transnational arts and culture website the Culture Trip. I talk about Nineveh, the state of South African literature, and writing in a foreign land.
Up to now, I’ve always been focused on writing about specific landscapes that I know very well – Cape Town, basically. But since moving, I’ve found this shifting; I’m less tethered to the real. The world I’m writing about in my current novel is still recognisably South Africanish, and I’ve produced a couple of short stories that are Norwichish, but everything has taken on a slightly strange, otherworldly cast, which I’m enjoying.
