Literati Glitterati: Claire Christian On Modern Love, Best Friends and West Side Honey
Across her plays and novels, Meanjin-based author Claire Christian explores modern life and love in Australia. From the emotional YA of her first novel Beautiful Mess, to the comedy of modern love in It’s Been a Pleasure, Noni Blake and her brand new book West Side Honey, Claire has developed a voice that is both truthful and funny. Claire joins Literati Glitterati to chat about West Side Honey, which follows single mum Cleo in her journey to work out what she wants and how to go about getting it. Claire chats to Mel about how she went about creating the complex characters and relationships in the novel and why she wants ‘more love for the besties”.
