We have some great news to share with you all: Kali VanBaale has not one, but TWO new interviews about her book, The Space Between. Kali talked with Bull and the Michigan Quarterly Review about The Space Between, recently digitally re-released by MG Press.
First, Kali talked with the Michigan Quarterly Review about ‘book quilting,’ asking hard questions, and more:
“I think most literary fiction attempts to not only tell a story, but to also reflect certain aspects of society back at its readers.” – Read Cameron Finch’s full interview with Kali VanBaale for the Michigan Quarterly Review.
Next, Kali discusses revisiting a story a decade later, her work to improve mental health treatment, writing about dark spaces, and more with Bull:
“It’s a quiet book. It’s often dark but never gratuitous. It’s a book that’s brutally honest…I think this is part of what I find most necessary about The Space Between: it’s never easy. It’s never trying too hard. It’s never trying to exploit tragedy or violence to sell a book. It’s not trying to fan flames of outrage or score political points. It’s not trying to glorify, vilify, or absolve.” – Read Benjamin Drevlow’s interview with Kali VanBaale for Bull.
If you still haven’t had a chance to get your copy of The Space Between in eBook format, buy it here.
