A live video chat with Matthew Allard. This was recorded on November 30, 2010.
Lifelong friends battle an illness threatening to disconnect their relationship. A boy scandalously attracted to books comes to terms with his unconventional sexuality. Twin girls, longing to be different, encounter a great white shark. A sheltered country boy runs off to the city and discovers friendship without ever leaving his apartment. Matthew Allard’s fiction debut is filled with obsessive teenagers, scorned women,and unreliable men; but throughout, it brims with characters simply trying to lasso a moment of happiness, sometimes under rather curious conditions. Printed alongside the 19 Ian Dingman illustrations which inspired them, the stories in To Slow Down The Time come together to provide a charming snapshot of modern storytelling.
