Set In Stone: The SWH! Podcast Talks To Linda Cracknell...

For the latest SWH! podcast Ali spoke to writer Linda Cracknell about her latest novel, The Other Side of Stone (or is it a novella, or a short story collection?).

As well as the format, the two discuss the importance of place in Linda's work, her fascination with derelict buildings, how and why she picked these stories to tell, the unusual starting point for The Other Side of Stone, the physical aspect to her writing, and a whole lot more.

It's a fascinating insight into the life and work of a writer who avoids easy categorisation, and who is all the better for it.

The Other Side of Stone is out now, published by Taproot Press.
