revealing conversation about the inner life of a writer. Toltz speaks
openly about his ambivalence when his first novel, A Fraction of the
Whole, was short-listed for the Man Booker Prize in 2008. He walks us
through his process of developing the characters, settings and structure
of Quicksand which he intended to be as close to a complete opposite of
A Fraction of the Whole as he could manage. This is a 'must listen' for
all writers and those who love the art of writing.
