Trapdoors: more than an interview

When I met Ian Maleney for an interview last summer, and mentioned how in writing En abime I ended up organising a system of trapdoors, I could not anticipate that the interview he’d have published could become a set of trapdoors in itself, opening into words, poetry, images and sounds.

Ian read through and listened to my two books, En abime and F.M.R.L., mixed in my voice and other voices, and arranged a non-linear structure that mirrors the rhapsodic way our conversation took shape in July as we discussed periphery, voice, dialect, writing sound, poetry and more. My fractured, at times unfinished sentences appear as they were during the interview: they were not polished or completed into anything else than the way they were uttered.

You can read and hear the interview on Fallow Media .
