It’s too easy to make a pun-tastic intro to this Stuart Evers podcast. Insert one here………………….. He wrote Ten Stories About Smoking. He wrote If This Is Home. Both are about men and self-delusion and the things that keep us from settling down. Both are bittersweet books. Both are brilliant. So I interviewed him. We’ve known each other for a while, which is why this is a proper interview instead of a geeky ‘HEY REMEMBER WHEN WE DID THAT THING’ style thing. I’m serious now. We got a write-up in Metro. And so, I must remember the old adage, with great coverage comes great responsibility. Or something…
We talk about If This Is Home, web 2.0 vs writing, writing about home and where Stuart gets his ideas from (spoiler alert: his mum).
So, here we are again… The Subaltern Podcast – Author Nikesh Shukla talks to other writers and authors and novelists about stuff, from writing to r’n'b. It’s the anti-panel discussion.
