Interview with author Craig Higginson

English Today caught up with Craig Higginson, author of The Dream House, the novel that will be replacing Americanah as the Grade 12 set work in 2019. We asked him what inspired him to write the novel, the issues he wished to explore and what he hopes readers might gain from reading it.

In this exclusive interview, Craig shares his thoughts and feelings on a wide range of topics related to the novel, including his interpretation of the motivations of the main characters, what he believes the work suggests about its major themes, and the importance of challenging the idea that what happened in the past is ‘someone else’s business’ and not our responsibility.
