Author to Author with Ally Wilkes (All the White Spaces)

It’s no secret that I’m completely obsessed with polar expedition stories. There’s danger, nature at her most brutal, survival transfiguring even the most familiar things, literal hauntings, and hubris making and breaking everyone it gets its gnarly hands on. Ally Wilkes taps into these elements in her debut, All the White Spaces, with the added layer of a trans man’s coming-of-age in the world’s harshest environment: Antarctica.

Join me in celebrating the U.K. release date with this interview that covers all things from research, idea origins, and the revision process for this wintry, chilling debut. (In the U.S., the book comes out on March 29, 2022)
