Too close for comfort: Daisy Johnson's 'Sisters' tell a gothic tale


Inseparable, intense, secretive and spookily intertwined: these are the two sibling protagonists at the centre of Daisy Johnson’s unsettling novel "Sisters". The author tells us about how the relationship between July and her older sister September evolved throughout the course of her writing and why she wanted to explore the darker parts of family dynamics. We also talk about lockdown reading, the pervasive presence of internet culture and how, as a precociously talented writer, Daisy found herself on the Man Booker shortlist at just 27 years old.
