I had the great pleasure to meet author Clarissa Goenawan at On Rain, a book reading held by Sing Lit Station. Since we had the opportunity to chat about her book, Rainbirds, beforehand, I have to confess to having been biased in her favour when reading it.
I asked Theo A Gerken about his book, The Carrot Man and his experience writing it, and his answers are every bit as unconventional as his book. How much of you (your experiences, your personality) is your characters? The book is about 90
I came by the Carrot Man by Theo A Gerken via a really bad review. Someone declared that it was the worst book that she’d ever read. In truth, it’s far more complex than that. It’s a well written book. Experimental and inventive and, thankfully, short.
