You might not know anything about Walthamstow other than that it’s the end of the Victoria Line and spawned ’90s boy band East 17. But its diversity and “unpretentious” nature has been inspiring writer and journalist Stuart Evers for the last few years. Currently he is working on a novel set in Walthamstow based around a family over several generations, somehow managing to juggle the writing with an expanding family of his own, having recently had his first child.
Stuart’s first published short story Some Great Project appeared in Litro magazine and went on to be included in his debut short story collection Ten Stories About Smoking, published last year by Picador. His debut novel If This Is Home questioned the what the concept of home means, so LitroTV decided to catch up with Stuart in his local to see what Wathamstow has meant to him and to his writing.
