Just discovered this great discussion of/around Rupetta. The podcast discussion includes two episodes, one discussing various ideas and para-texts prior to reading the novel, and the other a post-reading discussion.
It’s always a little disconcerting listening to/being privy to other people’s discussion of your work, but I really enjoyed hearing Adrian M Ryan and Charlotte Geater really grapple with the book’s flaws and ambitions in a deeply engaged way.
