We published five interviews this summer, with authors we really like and whose books we strongly recommend.
“It is difficult and dangerous to generalize about population groups when talking about apartheid”

“Isn’t there greed, envy and pride in every community, rich or poor, American or French, black or white?”
“I have a faith in fiction – that it allows us to understand ourselves better”
“I write in order to think. It’s the way I ask questions and interrogate the world. It’s the way I experience life most fully.”
We’re very proud to have an interview of Ruth Ozeki on Feedbooks as she deservedly made the cut for the shortlist of the Man Booker Prize with her novel A Tale for the Time Being.
