Ep 489 Predicting the pandemic: Sue Rainsford - Redder Days
- The Women's Podcast
- Apr 5, 2021
Sue Rainsford handed in the final manuscript of her novel Redder Days on the 14th of March 2020, the same day that schools and colleges closed their doors due to Covid-19. It was remarkable timing, given the (now all too familiar) pandemic theme running through her book. Set in a world wracked by climate change, Redder Days tells the story of a survivalist cult who seek to escape a mysterious contagion only known as ‘red’. In today’s episode, the author speaks to Róisín Ingle about this accidental prediction, an idea she’s had since 2013. They also discuss her childhood spent in South Dublin, her love for dystopian writing and plans for her next book.
