Sue Orr interviewed by Noelle McCarthy about LOOP TRACKS.
INTERVIEW / Q+A / BOOK-SIGNING
“I’m very excited to discuss Loop Tracks with Noelle — she understands social and familial politics so well, and writes about them with great curiosity and insight in her memoir Grand. There are significant similarities between New Zealand’s and Ireland’s history when it comes to women’s reproductive rights. And then there’s the recent overturning in the USA of Roe v Wade, sadly reminding us that these rights can never be taken for granted.” -- Sue Orr
“Loop Tracks is one of my favourite novels of the last 12 months, a clever and finely wrought exploration of the ways the past reverberates inside us, and of how secrets and patterns echo down the generations. I'm really looking forward to talking to Sue about the characters she's created and about the historic – and more recent – events that inspired this story.” - Noelle McCarthy
