Sarah: Stories about grandmothers and granddaughters are somewhat rare. Perhaps this is inspired by my own grandmothers; they were all very complex women with hopes and dreams and flaws, full of wisdom and kindness as well as anxieties and fears and blindspots to the needs of others. I think we need to read about more grandmothers like that in fictional worlds. De-centering the sexual relationship was meant to stress the importance of the grandmother-granddaughter relationship—to my mind, that was the most emotionally important and interesting aspect of the story. The image of a middle-aged cat dragging home tattered books of stoic philosophy is funny and striking. The animals are an essential part of the story, and they never become cutesy or overwhelm the narrative. Do you write about animals often? I believe animals are in many ways observers of the human world that humans tend to underestimate. Did you always intend to leave the reason unspoken? That can be an important thing to do, whether in art or real life, but I also think that being vague can be artistically meaningful.
