Anakana Schofield – Award Winning Author of Bina, Martin John and Malarky

mots I

Two words, well four Agnes words.

One used in relation to her work describes her as a film essayist. It suggests rolling to me rather than a full stop between. I like this idea that I am being essayed in a film. Sometimes being essayed on the page is so constricted. I was reading something recently about this topic mais c’etait qui? Monsieur Focault? It will come back to me.

Terrain vague.

Have loved these two words that describe a single place since we meeted and greeted them in Petit Nicolas (merci a mon petit). The boys go to the terrain vague and there’s so much possibility there. Terrain vague the opposite of high density. A patch left open for things to be discarded on and people such as small folk to run amok in and weave around what’s discarded.
