The Lucky Seven Interview, with Olive Senior

Olive Senior's stories, known for their wit, intimacy and vibrancy, capture the feeling of being told a story in the dim, secret light of a late-night kitchen. From war stories to Cinderella tales, the stories in the The Pain Tree (Cormorant Books) represent an experienced and insightful short fiction stylist at her best.

Today we welcome Olive to the site as part of our Lucky Seven series, a seven-question Q&A that gives readers a chance to hear about the writing processes of talented Canadian authors and gives authors a space to speak in depth about the thematic concerns of their newest books.
