Yesterday I did the interview for September’s Reform (out 31 August), with the novelist Jenn Ashworth (pictured, to the left of the wookie in a suit). It was (for me) a fascinating conversation about growing up in a Mormon family, leaving that faith behind, and then writing a novel (her third) about it.
Interviewing interesting people is the best part of editing a magazine, I think, especially when it involves sitting in the sunny garden of Lumen cafe for an hour drinking cranberry juice.
Ashworth’s novel is called The Friday Gospels, and you find out more about it here. It’s one of the best books I’ve read in a long time, so I hope the interview will send a lot of readers in its direction. Better still, read it now and come to the interview prepared.
