It’s not an exaggeration to say that three things I love more than anything are reading, writing and theatre. Anything that combines all three is guaranteed happy-making, A++, yes please where-do-I-sign-up?
When I first heard the concept for Wives Tales and Sonderlust (which were, at that time, called Wives Tales and “maybe-some-kind-of-collective-I-don’t-know-I’ll-think-of-that-later”) I was super excited because not only did it have bits of all my three favourite things, it also included my fourth favourite thing: telling stories. Stories that need to be told, have never been told, have been told lots of times by all different people, just stories. I mean, the first three favourite things pretty much exist to facilitate the telling of stories, that’s their point.
And my point, which I’m coming to in a round-about sort of way, is that I’m super excited to be here heading up the Friday Reads column and sharing some of my favourite stories with all of you.
