Iain Banks interviewed for The Guardian

The Guardian‘s Sarah Kinson has conducted a quick-fire interview with Iain, that’s available to read at The Guardian Unlimited.

The topic of the interview is ‘Why I Write’, and Iain talks about his inspiration and motivation for living the writer’s life, plus the joy of getting up and writing at 4 a.m. if that’s when inspiration happens to strike: “Which is good because then I can finish my allocation of words for the day by breakfast and have the day off.”
