A chat with Chris Cleave

On September 4, 2012

By Sophia Whitfield

Today I was lucky enough to meet British author Chirs Cleave. He is unassuming, affable and a little daunting.It's all that glaringly obvious intelligence.

He has often spoken about his anger at the world his children were being brought into. This anger was the motivation for his first book Incendiary. It is hard to imagine Chris Cleave angry, he seems such a gentle character.

We sat down and had a chat about life, the universe and the bike.

The interview will go up in the next couple of days.

In the meantime here is a review of his latest book Gold.
