Writing on the Cutting Edge - Pip Adam in conversation with Jane Forrest Waghorn.

When Pip Adam started her working life as a hairdresser she could not have guessed the experience and the people she met would help her win the country’s richest literary prize.

These days she is praised for making literature subversive fun in this country again and being the author “most wired-in to the seething discontent below the housing bubble and above the poverty line”.

She discusses the people, places and perspectives that inform her writing.

Pip is a novelist, short story writer and reviewer, and The New Animals won the 2018 Acorn Foundation Fiction Prize. She teaches creative writing and is the voice behind the Better off Read podcast.
