Episode 13 — Kathleen Jennings

FLYAWAY by Kathleen Jennings is a prismatic work, a work of poetry decanted into the beating chambers of a novella, a living and breathing novella which is never prosaic.

In this interview Kathleen spoke to me about her childhood, her new novella FLYAWAY, books in general, the importance of landscape to narrative, and narrative time in Icelandic sagas and Poirot. It felt like the beginning of a lot of other conversations and so I am definitely looking forward to speaking to Kathleen again.

FLYAWAY is out now:

You can read more about the covers of FLYAWAY on Kathleen's website.

(Incidentally, Lydian, the typeface on the Tor edition of FLYAWAY, was originally designed by Warren Chappell in 1938.)

During the podcast Kathleen recommended Angela Slatter and also spoke highly about TABOO by Kim Scott.

Thank you for coming on the podcast, Kathleen!

If you enjoy these conversations, and if you can manage it, please consider getting me virtual coffee. It will really help.


Thanks for listening.

See you next time.
