Neil Baker November 16, 2011 Dan, that’s a great story and an interesting interview. Someone asked me the other day what my fiction was about. I was stumped. I reckon I could just copy what you said, as it sums me up well too: “I would describe my work as moving between realist and magical realist fiction, dealing with the themes of love, family, parental-child relationships, and the loss of those things.” ! I guess your MA must be distance learning, given that it’s in Manchester. How does that work?
