There was a time when I, like a lot of other people, didn't appreciate Brisbane. It took me a while to work out that in terms of fiction Brisbane has a lot to offer. It's a great place to live, it has the colour and the characters and it's really coming into its own as a literary place to live. I love it here and I think that comes through in Zigzag Street.
