Malini Stevenson recently read a section from Devilskein & Dearlove to a wrapt audience of (mostly) 11 year-olds and a couple of adults, at two events in South West London. Interesting questions were asked about having a bad-tempered, rude heroine; tattoos, crickets who speak Pashto, and comparisons made to Alice in Wonderland (all those locked doors). We couldn’t get a connection to South Africa, so instead of talking to Alex, we showed the animation. Not for the first time, we were asked whether there would be a full length film. Wouldn’t that be great?
Thanks to Andrea (Balham) and Heather (Tooting) for hosting us.
