#14 | Kit de Waal

This episode of WriteStuff features Kit de Waal. Kit’s latest novel; The Trick to Time tells two love stories, both involving Mona, a woman who has suffered a lot and who comes up with a way of using dolls to provide healing to women who have suffered the loss of a child. We talk about this in this interview as well as her great first novel; My Name is Leon, in which she drew a lot from her professional life in describing the experience of a child in a foster care system. Kit is also an advocate for protest, which comes up in this discussion in the context of the housing protests taking place in Ireland.
