“A born storyteller, her narratives are uncontainable, fizzing up out of her pages like soda and vinegar in a bottle.” - The Guardian

Jan Carson is a writer based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Her critically acclaimed debut novel Malcolm Orange Disappears, inspired by her grandmother who had dementia, is a tremendously imaginative adventure tale full of poignancy and humour. Carson is also the author of short story collected Children’s Children and volume of flash fiction born from writer’s block, Postcard Stories. Jan has produced Radio drama for BBC Radio 4 and 3, most recently working with Liam Neeson and in 2016 she won the Harper's Bazaar UK short story competition. In this special LitCrawl Extended session, Jan talks with Charlotte Graham about her inspirations, ambitions, and fascination with Bob Dylan
