Katy Darby in Fatboy Review
Two new stories by UEA alumna Katy Darby are included in the latest edition of the online journal FatboyReview. Katy (pictured) graduated from the Creative Writing MA in 2006, when she was the recipient of the David Higham Award. Her first novel, ‘Whores' Asylum’, will be published by Penguin next month. FatboyReview is edited by Richard House, who gained his PhD in Creative and Critical Writing from UEA in 2008 and currently lectures at the University of Birmingham. The journal features work in a variety of media (text, film, photo, sound) and includes in addition to Katy’s work photographs from writer Lynne Tillman, a short film from Academy Award winner Eva Orner, a film from the archives of the Banco di Napoli by Jonas Mekas, a short graphic novel about New Orleans by artist Matjames, a first film by young Afghan filmmaker Suleiman Amanzad, poems by Elsa Braekkan-Payne, two chapters from a novel by Norwegian writer Tore Renberg, a graphic/text piece by artist Mitchell Kane, a short story in sections by Berlin writer Marcus Speh, and a short film by the Turrell twins. The projects were uploaded each day between December 25th and January 5th and will remain online throughout January. The journal can be found here.
