A Brief Chat With Peter Rix

Peter Rix has just released his debut novel, Water Under Water.

What was the last book you read and what are you currently reading?
A re-read (4th or 5th time) of The Sun Also Rises. Currently, The Tiger's Wife.

Which book from your bookshelf at home is your most treasured and why?
In the Skin of a Lion by Michael Ondaatje. His writing in this story inspires more than any other - for its poetry, the word choices & sentence construction.

Which fictional character do you most identify with?
10 minutes later... I have failed this test. Perhaps I have too little preparedness to relinquish enough reality to see myself as fictional.

What are you working on next?
A book that exposes the meanings and rituals of ownership and possessed objects and another about how male sexuality explodes, matures, decays and explodes again. 
Autographed copies of Water Under Water are available now at Shearer's Bookshop
