Andrew Hutchinson Interview

Andrew Hutchinson, author of the very interesting debut novel Rohypnol, is interviewed in "The Sydney Morning Herald" by Erik Jensen.

"The philosophy, I think people can relate to it," Hutchinson says. "I think you can relate to the aggression. You can read from the start to the end and sort of see where it's coming from; you can feel the frustration.

"I think you can link in with that [philosophy], but you can't link in with what they're doing. You shouldn't be able to link in with what they're doing.

"Hopefully people can read it and not necessarily understand, and yet empathise in a way and sort of feel with it, feel the aggression and feel the anger. As much as it is this real angst sort of stuff, you're meant to feel it."
