A Little More Conversation: The Scots Whay Hae! Podcast talks to David F. Ross...


For the latest SWH! podcast Ali spoke once again to writer David F. Ross to talk about his most recent novel Dashboard Elvis Is Dead, which is out now published by Orenda Books.


The two caught up in Ali's kitchen and the conversation covers David's reasons for wanting to write this book, the inspirations behind it, the strong bonds created between authors and their characters, why it was important to have a Scottish strand in the book, the challenges in writing about real events, and a whole lot more.


They also discuss the importance of American culture in both of their lives, and the complex nature of that relationship. It's always a pleasure to talk to David as there are few writers who talk about what they do with such clarity and self-reflection.
