Isobelle Carmody

Carmody, Isobelle

"Recommended. This is a candid interview of Isobelle Carmody. The writer talks about her childhood experiences, from which she draws her ideas for writing her books, and her beliefs and attitudes regarding death, truth, bleakness, and fantasy. The filming of the interview is very innovative, in that the writer discusses her life in front of various locations that were important to her writings and her attitudes towards life, including her childhood home, the next door neighbor's house, some trips she took as a teenager and young adult, and experiences in school." -EMRO Review
