Stephanie Cross Interviews Kate Grenville

February 28, 2012 | TLC Talent

TLC Reader Stephanie Cross writes interviews for different magazines and papers.  In one of her latest interviews, she talks to Kate Grenville, the Sydney-born novelist, about Australian history and language.

In the interview Stephanie writes: One particularly striking moment comes when Grenville’s heroine is suffering the inexpressible agony of labour. “Men are the ones in charge of the words,” Sarah thinks: “that’s why there isn’t one for this pain that only a woman can feel.” When I ask Grenville about this, she seizes on it: “I think with all my books, language has been their subject as much as anything else.”
