Episode 78 - Rosa Rankin-Gee: Part 4

16Oct

Part four of Rosa Rankin-Gee's This Writing Life podcast interview opens with some bad pronunciation, some Borges, a little light reading and some Vocalzone throat lozenge chatter. Rosa really begins by examining the idea of imagining the worst things possible as a way of forestalling the worst reality possible.

  • too much too young? Are children today under too much pressure?
  • what Rosa knew as a teenager?
  • reinvention, social media, the internet and youth
  • is there an innocence in The Last Kings of Sark that would be impossible in ten years?
  • what next for Rosa Rankin-Gee (that difficult second novel)?
  • The Book Club: Rosa's Parisian salon/soiree...
  • DJ Rankin-Gee: 'Craig David's all over their boink....'
  • Rankin-Gee en Paris
  • The Goldfinch, Yoko Ono, Mary Renault: final book chatter and hissing
