The Guardian
The novelist, 56, on the health benefits of eating less and walking more When I was a child and my parents separated, I went on walking holidays with my dad. My rubric’s always been to walk from home – I’m not a rambler. It’s about a sense of being and place and engagement with the environment around me. I like wild swimming, particularly in the sea – I swim out, then float and look at the horizon. I think that’s extremely good for the imagination. I still cycle even though I was knocked off my bike a few years ago, but mostly in the summer – it’s too dangerous in the winter in London.

First, let’s get the dragon in the room out of the way. Although people are going to make comparisons with Game of Thrones, I feel that the two dramas have little in common beyond a shared willingness to unveil flesh and hints of blood and gore to come. The world of Game of Thrones is essentially a Machiavellian one in which no one can be trusted and everyone lies.

Education was the author’s escape from an abusive childhood with survivalist Mormon parents, described in her extraordinary memoir Tara Westover grew up preparing for the End of Days in rural Idaho with radical survivalist Mormon parents. She didn’t get a birth certificate until she was nine, had no medical records because her father did not believe in doctors, and neither she nor her six older siblings went to school. Instead, they worked in her father’s junkyard. As she grew older, her father’s beliefs became more extreme and one of her brothers grew violent. At 17, she decided to educate herself as a means of escape. Within 10 years she had earned a PhD in intellectual history and political thought from Cambridge but was estranged from her parents and half of her siblings. Now 31 and still living in Cambridge, she has written a powerful memoir,

A four-year-old narrator powerfully brings home the fears of living life on the edge You already know Jesika, the four-year-old protagonist of Amanda Berriman’s debut. You will have seen her with her mum and baby brother squeezing a buggy laden with shopping bags on to the bus. Maybe you know them from the supermarket aisles, the mum exhausted and close to snapping, silently doing sums in her head. Jesika and her family live on the edge. They are scraping by, renting a slum flat in dangerous disrepair. One stroke of bad luck could push them into the abyss – and they face more than a few pushes in this book. It is Jesika’s naive voice that tells this story of a family moving ever closer to disaster. Her first-person narration features childlike logic and rhythms of thought, misinterpreted and compacted words. On night falling, she says:

Her reaction to an Oscar for Fargo suggested a complex attitude towards fame. With Three Billboards, it will be tested again Winners of the Oscar for best actress can pretty much choose what to do next. But, when Frances McDormand won in 1996 – for her performance as an eccentric but unfoolable Minnesota cop in Fargo – she made choices that surprised Hollywood. The best thing about the award, she told interviewers, was that she was now famous enough to be cast in a Sesame Street video giving tips to children who got lost. Then, at a point where she could have picked any film, she chose to go to the Gate theatre in Dublin for a revival of Tennessee Williams’s A Streetcar Named Desire. She specifically asked the Gate not to mention her Oscar in the programme.
