An exclusive interview with Dave Roberts
So Dave, how's it going?
Not bad, thanks.
What kind of music does a top author like yourself listen to while writing?
Good question. My current playlist has Saint Etienne, the Handsome Family, Eno, Babybird, Grandaddy, Billy Bragg and Bucks Fizz.
Dave, the sequel to e-luv is eagerly awaited by literally thousands of people. When will it be finished?
I'm planning on having it done by early next year. Due to having a zero attention span, I'm writing two more books at the same time - and jumping from one to another.
That's great. Talking of books, are there any you're particularly looking forward to reading this year?
Why yes, there are. In Search of Adam by Caroline Smailes and Confessions of a Chatroom Freak by Biffo both look fabulous.
What's in your fridge currently?
A half-eaten can of kidney beans and some cauliflower.
Has anyone sent you any Oatibix yet?
No. But they really should since it is compatible with the hideous diet I am on.
When's your birthday?
Funny you should mention that - it's tomorrow, March 1st.
Dave, I know your time is extremely valuable, so I'll wind it up there. Thanks very much for talking to me.
