Interviews on Feedbooks

by Lara

Lately on Feedbooks, we have been publishing interviews more and more regularly. There are already sixteen interviews available.

We do not necessarily choose to interview reknown authors whose books are already praised by every newspaper and magazine.

Every day, we index the newest releases and we read the latest chronicles and press articles. We can choose to read a book because we like a specific author, because the plot seems interesting, or because it has been recommended to us. We will happily read something we would not have chosen in the first place.

American literature is great, but with more and more authors from across the world whose works are being translated in English and published in ebooks, we hope to interview authors from as many countries as possible.

You will therefore find an interview with Norwegian crime author Gunnar Staalesen, Canadian author and screenwriter Patrick deWitt, British rock critic Peter Doggett, Swedish crime author Kjell Eriksson, and French hard-boiled writer Didier Daeninckx.

With specialized publishers such as Tor, Forge and Orbit, we also hope to interview fantasy and science-fiction authors in the near future.


If you like humourous detective stories…
Read our interview of S.G. Browne about Lucky Bastard

 

Are you lucky? Do you believe in luck? If you like mystery novels, parody and San Francisco, do not hesitate to read this novel: you’ll spend a really good time. S.G. Browne’s talent should now  be poached.

“While I’ve been trying to find a way to process my sense of humor into a consumable format that I can sell as a perfume or an energy shot, so far I haven’t had any luck, so for the time being it’ll have to be consumed in my novels.”


If you like bold transgressive fiction…
Read our interview of Chuck Palahniuk about Snuff

Author of the worlwide famous novel Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk continues his exploration of trangressive fiction with Snuff, where we follow the actress Cassie Wright on her way to try to break the world record for serial fornication porn movies, on camera, with six hundred men.

“My books are always about people struggling to gain or maintain power”


If you like quirky characters…
Read our interview of Maria Semple about Where’d You Go, Bernadette

Where’d You Go, Bernadette is the second novel of American author and former screenwriter Maria Semple. Funny, clever, original: the novel is all that – and much more.

“I think the Internet takes us away from reality. It’s an addiction. It offers escape without nourishment.”


If you like westerns and black humor…
Read our interview of Patrick deWitt about The Sisters Brothers

With The Sisters Brothers, Patrick deWitt has written a highly entertaining, funny and enjoyable revisited version of the classic western novel.

“It’s a main thing, a sort of barometer in all my work: if I’m not having fun, then something is wrong”


If you like road-movies and Canada…
Read our interview of Dianne Warren about Juliet in August

“I felt as though I were juggling, or perhaps writing music, and trying to achieve a certain rhythm throughout”
