Goodreads asked Bronwyn Rodden:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Bronwyn Rodden My most recent book is in fact a collection of short fiction, most of which has been published individually in literary journals in Australia and the U.K.
I've always been interested in the absurd in writing, such as Franz Kafka, and in art, such as some of the work by Surrealists. I didn't deliberately set out to write these pieces in this way, they grew out of some of the absurdities I noticed around me, such as the way we accept a certain way of living and working without consciously examining this.
Humour is another important aspect of all of my writing and I feel if its good enough for Shakespeare, its good enough for me.
