Sense & Sensibility: The SWH! Podcast Talks To Nick Holdstock...



For the latest SWH! podcast, Ali speaks to writer and journalist Nick Holdstock to talk about his latest novel Quarantine (published by Swift Press), which is set ten years after a deadly pandemic has swept the globe, in a world which is still learning to adapt.


The two discuss the style and structure of Quarantine, writing distinct narrative voices, the initial response to the novel, the importance of offering hope even in the darkest of scenarios, and much more.


Nick also talks about his journalism and how that may feed into his fiction (even if it's subliminal), and his debut novel The Casualties.


It's a fascinating conversation about one of the most through-provoking and arresting novels of the year, and a writer who you need to know if you don't already.
