Evie Wyld is the author of After the Fire, A Still Small Voice, described as “stunningly good”, a “superb first novel” and “beautifully moody”. To celebrate the success of the book – and a spanking new website – here are five books that in some way influenced Evie:
1. Bits of Me are Falling Apart – William Leith
Lonely and funny.
2. Terra Nullius: A Journey Through No One’s Land – Sven Lindqvist & Sarah Death Non-fiction about the landscape of Australia and the people who live in it.
3. In the Winter Dark – Tim Winton
A brilliant horror story.
4. The Quiet American – Graham Greene
The only fiction I read about Vietnam.
5. Exit Wounds – Rutu Modan
Graphic fiction about difficult relationships made more difficult by old family problems.
