VOTM: What’s the most unusual experience you’ve had at a reading?
ARMAND: The strangest thing was reading in front of a picture of Benny Hill (surrounded by a bevy of bikini-clad girls), with a signed dedication to Anthony Burgess.
Louis Armand is the author of seven collections of poetry and five novels, most recently the neo-noir Breakfast at Midnight (2012) and Canicule (2013), both from Equus (London); Cairo, a novel about time-travelling dwarfs, is due out in January. His screenplay, Clair Obscur, received honourable mention at the 2009 Alpe Adria Trieste International Film Festival. His work has been included in the Penguin Anthology of Australian Poetry and Best Australian Poems. He is an editor of VLAK and lives in Prague.
