Yasmin Ladha interviewed by rob mclennan 

Yasmin Ladha chatted with rob mclennan as part of his 12 or 20 questions series:

“When I write, I do not start with the intention to change things up on the top of the mountain, an epic whooshing down to the people.  In this, I do not write for the benefit of others.  I start from a hollow place, a private place that I enter with washed feet.  I write because something touches me, an observation quick as spit, or slow as treacle, and I get frisky, ready to take off.”
