Interview with Anna Scavolini

Anna Scavolini, protagonist of my McIlvanney Prize-nominated debut novel, IN THE SILENCE, recently sat down with Suze Reviews to answer some questions about herself. She wasn’t the most cooperative of interviewees, perhaps, but I think her answers are quite revealing of her character.
