This week we have a conversation with Sharlene Teo, debut author of Ponti. It’s described as “an exquisite story of friendship and memory spanning decades, at once an astounding portrayal of the gaping loneliness of teenagehood, and a vivid exploration of how tragedy can make monsters of us.”

Sharlene was in town for UEA Live and spoke to Florence Reynolds about the origins of the book and her sources of inspiration.

Hosted by Simon Jones, writer and Digital Marketing Manager at the National Centre for Writing.
