What was the last book you read?
It Chooses You by Miranda July. I loved it. It was really amazing to hear about her process while creating her film The Future and to get a glimpse of her personality. It was the first thing I’ve read by her where she was just talking in her own personal voice. It was interesting how the photos in it come across as photo essays, and that the people she meets really come across as characters through the way she interviews them. Hearing her inner narrative, her inner dialogue as she meets theses people, is really fascinating.
Who is your favourite Vancouver writer?
It would be a tie between Amber Dawn and Cathleen With. Two of my favourite books are Sub Rosa and Having Faith in the Polar Girls’ Prison.
