Julienne Lottering [1]Patrick Connors interviewed Jim Johnstone and Julienne Lottering [2] for newz4u.net [3] about their new book, Sunday, the locusts [4], launched yesterday at The Ossington by Tightrope Books [5].

From the interview:

My interest in evolutionary biology and post-apocalyptic literature certainly contributed to the project in a narrative sense. In keeping with archeological bent of the book, Julie and I used a lot of found text…”
