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.

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

You should also listen to Vera talking to Dave Pickering on his podcast Getting Better Acquainted.

Episode released: 16th February, 2016.
