Tony Jackman interviewed Marita van der Vyver on her novel Still breathing and her memoir A long letter to my daughter.
What is it like to get older? How does one hold an entire cast of characters in one’s hand? Are her characters based on real people? How does it feel to dream in a language that differs from the one your daughter dreams in?
These are some of the questions they address in the interview, which took place at the Etienne van Heerden Veldsoirée in Cradock during September 2023.
