JESSIE BUR­TON AND TESSA HADLEY ON MAGIC AND RE­AL­ISM

Harper's Bazaar (UK) - - Talking Points -

‘There’s a gos­samer line be­tween our sense of re­al­ity and un­re­al­ity – and of­ten, it blends,’ said Jessie Bur­ton, au­thor of the best­selling novel The Minia­tur­ist, who was in con­ver­sa­tion with the nov­el­ist and short-story writer Tessa Hadley. The two ap­proach their craft in dif­fer­ent ways, but each share com­mon sen­ti­ments, as voiced by Hadley: ‘When you send a book out there, and peo­ple that you don’t know read it and it speaks to them – that’s a kind of magic.’ ca­tri­ona gray
