So, yesterday I was interviewed (live – eek!) by the lovely Lynn Freeman on National Radio about The Year of Falling and The Glass Rooster and here is a podcast link in case you’d like to listen to it.

OK, this blog is so far totally self-indulgent, but I will endeavour to make it more interesting as I go along.  In the meantime – I was interviewed by Lynn Freeman on the Arts on Sunday programme on National Radio today.  It’s an interesting experience being interviewed.  Usually, I probably take a bit of time to consider my answer before I give it, but when it’s radio and you can’t really have those great, long silences, you have to take more of a stream-of-consciousness approach and fill the gap with whatever inanity springs to mind.  My friends say I didn’t do too badly, but then they’re a kind and forgiving bunch.  Lynn was lovely and I did feel very at ease with her.  But of course, I came away thinking of all those things I could have said, like, I don’t know, how I’m a great Lewis Carroll fan and have a tattoo of the Cheshire cat.  If you’d like to listen to the interview, it’s on the Radio NZ website for the next 4 weeks – here
