News  ·  A Book of My Own


Kate Scott guest blogs about her new book, Giant. “At a school visit recently, I was asked which of my books was my favourite: ‘Giant,’ I said, without hesitating. This is partly because my most recent book is always my favourite (because I hope I’ve improved in ability as a writer – whether or not that’s true!) But it is also because this book has more of me in it. When I wrote about Anzo listening to a late-night radio talk show because he’s lonely, I remembered similar nights as teen, listening to Radio Luxembourg in the dark, feeling a little less lost as I listened to a stranger’s voice. And when Anzo finally starts to gain the confidence to not only accept who he is but to celebrate his identity, I remembered my own roller coaster ride to being ‘all right’ (as Anzo puts it!)”
