Eliza Tudor’s wonderful Shells is featured in the March issue. She talks with us about what can break her easily, the problem of love, medical conditions and slow dances.
1. How is love a problem worse than cars?
Trust me on this.Â Mechanics, yes.
2. What user name would you make out of a B-52′s song?
@dancethismessaround OR @dancearoundthismess (depending on the day)
3. What can break you easily?
No coffee.Â Sometimes even bad coffee. (Shameful).
4. I’ve never heard ofÂ Osteogenesis Imperfecto before reading “Shells” and the level of detail and hazards that affect Romy’s life are incredible. What has your personal experience been with this particular condition or is this a case of extensive research being crafted into a compelling story?
Someone I loved very much had OI.Â Someone I grew up with and admired and adored.Â She was a young woman who loved writing and wanted to be a writer.Â She passed away years ago but I will never forget watching as she wrote, how she balanced a pen between her fingers, a type of dance really.Â It is still one of the most elegant things Iâ€™ve ever seen.
5. What would you slow dance to at a prom?
Tears for Fears, baby.Â Everybody Wants to Rule the World.
6. When can a stale middle be better than a fresh start?
