 "[I] feel that my publisher would prefer I do different things, and I either actively or passively rebel against expectations from other parties. I think it’s very important that you tell them what you’re going to do, it’s not about them telling me what to do, or about the reader asking for a sympathetic narrator. It’s about, this is the book I write and I would hope that it is original and that it bears a certain integrity, in that I don’t worry too much about how it’ll be received or what people want from me. Which is not a very female trait. I’m not a people pleaser."

Claire Kilroy, in interview
