“The Weirdness” of Lynn Coady

“Characters, faces, gestures—all those sweet, tiny details of life that tantalize you daily, that you are dying to absorb and make stories out of. It’s a craving precisely like when you stood in front of the nail polish display at Shopper’s Drug Mart as a 14-year-old, wondering if anyone would notice if you dropped that amazing shade of Pop-star Pink into your pocket. Now, as a writer, the whole world is your nail polish display, and what’s more, you can help yourself. A thrilling, colourful array of gorgeous human peculiarity revolves before your eyes and you still can’t quite believe it’s all yours for the taking. Even after all this time, you can’t believe your luck.”
