Rosetta Allan on "crazy love"

From Standing Room Only, 2:40 pm on 15 August 2021

Rosetta Allan believes very strongly in writing about what you know, even if that means sharing aspects of your life that are deeply personal and involve those you love. In her new novel Crazy Love, Rosetta tells her own unconventional love story, though using different names, with the permission of her partner who is bipolar. She wrote the novel while holding the Creative NZ/University of Waikato Writer in Residence. She was also the first New Zealand writer in residence at the St Petersburg Art Residency in Russia. Rosetta also has two volumes of poetry to her name, 'Little Rock', and 'Over Lunch', and two other novels 'Purgatory' and 'The Unreliable People'.
