In episode 21 we sit down with Mathias Énard, winner of the Prix Goncourt, to speak to him about his process, the line between history and fiction and the benefits of a good pair of slippers.
Mathias’ work includes the novels ‘Zone’, ‘Compass’, ‘Street of Thieves’ and ‘Tell them of Battles, Kings and Elephants’ which he was promoting when we spoke to him towards the end of last year. All of these novels have been published by Fitzcarraldo Editions and can be purchased here: https://fitzcarraldoeditions.com/authors/mathias-enard
Apologies once more for a couple of audio glitches on this episode – we’re working on it.
As we mention at the beginning, there were some technical issues with the sound on one of the microphones in this episode – apologies, but it should sound ok if you’re listening on earphones/headphones.
In episode 18, we speak to Marc Nash, most recently author of ‘Three Dreams in the Key of G’, published by Dead Ink in 2018.
Marc joined us in London to discuss choosing the playlist to write to, intense bursts of writing during the summer holidays, using the editing process to add material rather than remove, playing through language, writing across gender and plenty more.
Welcome all to the first Unsound Methods of 2019! This month, we are delighted to be joined for a second time by Eimear McBride. In episode 12 we spoke to Eimear alongside Noémi Lefebvre but we didn’t have much time to speak to them before that evening’s event, so Eimear was kind enough to come to the studio for a more extended chat.
Among other subjects in this episode we discuss Eimear’s process, experimental fiction and the role of the novel in modern life.
Thanks again to Eimear for her generosity with her time.
