In this episode I chat to author R O Kwon about her novel THE INCENDIARIES. We talk about the pain of losing her faith and how her yearning for God lit the fuse that would become THE INCENDIARIES, a story about characters pulled into a religious terrorist sect. We talk about the 10 years the novel took to write, how she dealt with the challenge of writing convincingly about fanaticism, and what it's like being a cool author. She also opens up about some personal creative quirks, and I actually ask the question 'what's your favourite letter of the alphabet?' because that is how a serious adult interviews a writer about literature. But I genuinely wanted to know!
