Anakana Schofield – Author of Martin John and Malarky

Irish Times Interview: Brought to the Book

Thank you to Martin Doyle who interviewed me for the Irish Times this week and thank you for the warm comments I received about it from readers.

Brought to Book: Anakana Schofield on parallel reading, the literary patriarchy and books as portals

‘I write in a very troubling manner that I wouldn’t advise anyone to adopt’

“Being a writer has taught me I am nothing without other women. It has also taught me I am often the shortest person at festivals and not to sit too far back into the chair because when my feet don’t touch the ground, I have to make embarrassing paddling signals attempting to right myself upright. ”

The whole interview is readable here.
