Lauren Liebenberg on Her Latest Novel, Cry Baby: "It’s a Slap Across the Face of a Suburban Dystopia"
“Cry Baby is part confession (that I should have saved for my Bad Mommy memoirs). It’s also part survival guide and a manual on the art of extortion for parents, ultimately it’s about control – and letting go. It’s a slap across the face of a suburban dystopia and a hymn to the extraordinary beauty in ordinary lives,” Liebenberg says.
Read the interview:
I live in the shadow of the sewerage pipe. Dainfern Valley. While I was born in Zimbabwe, where I spent my childhood, mostly just pedal-by bog-rolling the neighbours and so forth, this angry, hopeful, crazy city has been home for a long time. I’ve even grown to love the ‘Hijacking Hot spot’ sign on the highway next to my off-ramp. I live with my husband, Mark, and a pack comprising three dogs, two cats, and two boys, eight-year-old William and seven-year-old Russell, in whom the feral instinct runs strong.
