Sanlamprys vir Jeuglektuur-kortlys 2021: ’n onderhoud met Faeed Amardien

Naomi Meyer, Faeed Amardien Skrywersonderhoude 2021-05-06

"Ek dink daar word nie genoeg erkenning gegee aan Kaapse Afrikaans nie. Dis ’n storie wat handel oor die narratief op die Kaapse Vlaktes, dus het ek gedink dis meer eg en outentiek om in Kaaps te skryf. Dit pas in die verteller se mond en maak dit baie meer persoonlik terwyl jy lees."

Naomi Meyer, Betsie van Niekerk Skrywersonderhoude 2021-04-23

"Nie net hulle lyding, verslaenheid en oorlewing is ’n groot deel van die verhaal nie, maar ook hulle ongelooflike vermoë om te midde van alles tog met lewe aan te gaan; selfs vreugde en hoop te vind, om onverpoosd núút en oor te begin."

Naomi Meyer, Musa Baloyi Books and writers 2021-04-22

"The idea of writing this novel came after I noticed that there are many famous artists who die poor in our country. Mostly, it’s due to lack of education, because they can’t interpret their contracts. They can’t manage their money. They can’t work elsewhere if their talent becomes unproductive."

2021 Sanlam Prize for Youth Literature shortlist: an interview with Jaco Fouché

Naomi Meyer, Jaco Fouché Books and writers 2021-04-22

"Why write? Because you (as a reader yourself) know all about the joy that a reader finds in a good book. You want to replicate that joy, be responsible for it. A book is a hand reaching out, sometimes to communicate, sometimes to offer comfort, sometimes to outrage."

Naomi Meyer, Julian Jansen Skrywersonderhoude 2021-03-31
