Kit de Waal

Fri 16 Nov / Quarterhouse

Kit de Waal talks to Claire Armistead about her Irish and Caribbean origins, why becoming a writer late was a good thing for her, campaigning for working class writers, love, loss and creativity.

Kit de Waal grew up in Birmingham. She worked for fifteen years in criminal and family law, was a magistrate for several years and sits on adoption panels. Her first novel, My Name is Leon is a heartbreaking story of love, identity and learning to overcome unbearable loss. Her latest novel, The Trick of Time is an unforgettable tale of grief, longing and a love that lasts a lifetime. She used part of her advance to fund a scholarship to Birkbeck University’s MA in Creative Writing for a writer who couldn’t otherwise fund their studies.
