Fuse #8 TV: Aaron Starmer and Reading (Too Much) Into Easy Books
YES! It is time for yet another episode of Fuse #8 TV and today we have a doozy. A fair frolicsome, lithe and lovely episode wherein I take Are You My Mother? and destroy your ability to ever read it again. And if I fail to do even that, just read this version over at The Toast and voila. Instant nightmares.
But enough about other sites. Today our special guest is the marvelous Aaron Starmer. If you read his 2014 book The Riverman then you might want to know a bit about the brains behind the book. This year the sequel, The Whisper, is coming out and so we chat about the cover, the inspiration, and what’s next in Starmer’s future. Enjoy!
You may notice that the initial video slide has a name slip. Fortunately it only last for a bit so feel free to fast forward past that part.
All other Fuse #8 TV episodes are archived here.
And a big thank as well to the good people at Macmillan for being my sponsor and helping to put this together.
