Interview with Ali Bryan (The Figgs) in Prairie books NOW

The Spring/Summer 2018 issue of Prairie books NOW features an interview with Ali Bryan, author of The Figgs. Ali discusses the real-life inspiration for the Figgs’ family crest (three birds without wings), researching adoption, and writing humour:

“The humour is hands down the easiest and most enjoyable part of my writing process. It feels the most natural. If it feels even the slightest like I was trying to be funny, it won’t be funny. So many times I’ve done a reading and I get to a part that I find particularly amusing and no one will even crack a smile, and then I’ll read another passage that I don’t even think is funny, and people are laugh-crying. It’s the best part of what I do.”
