I just wrote fan mail…

..and I’m not even ashamed. I just love me some Edwidge Dandicat. Even more after reading this interview.

My gushing (in the comments section) went something like this:

I’m such a fan of your writing and …of you (Ms Dandicat) after reading this interview. As a women writer from the Caribbean (Antigua, specifically), and as a literary advocate, I continue to be inspired by you. As a reader I continue to be moved by you. I especially love Farming of Bones and Create Dangerously which recently and deservedly (in my view) won the award for best book at the Congres of International Writers of the Caribbean in Guadeloupe. Wish you’d been there.
