For the 81st Second-Hand Book Factory, Charles Adrian is joined by long-time friend and unofficial agent Vera Chok, who describes herself here as an actress, writer, performance-maker and dork. “I was so happy,” she says, “when I finally discovered that I didn’t have to dance like a cool kid.”

They talk new perspectives on writers of colour, a novel to fill you up and questions of green dye.

Info about The Good Immigrant, edited by Nikesh Shukla, which Vera has contributed to is here.
