S4 Ep10 Cecile Pin
March 07, 2023 · 54 min
Debut author Cecile Pin, whose novel WANDERING SOULS is out this week. WANDERING SOULS is a luminous, boldly imagined debut novel about three Vietnamese siblings who seek refuge in the UK in the late seventies and the way that experience echoes through generations. Cecile and Kate Sawyer, author of THE STRANDING & THIS FAMILY have a lovely chat about how her philosophy degrees feed into her writing, interviewing Ocean Vong as her first journalism gig, how the background of her book was pieced together using her own family history, transcripts from downing street meetings and videos on youtube and the benefits of being in a writing group. I hope you enjoy listening in on this chat as much as I did recording it and find all the chat about writing process interesting and helpful.
