Fools and Entanglement: Sue Grant-Marshall Speaks to Steven Boykey Sidley

EntanglementSue Grant-Marshall speaks to Steven Boykey Sidley, author of Entanglement, about the dinner party that sparked his debut novel and his low tolerance for stupidity:

Distinguished professor Jared Borowitz does not “do” fools. Neither is he into conspiracy theorists, supernaturalists, card cheats, movie queue-jumpers or religious fundamentalists — to name just a few of the irritants that savage his rational world.

His creator, debut novelist Steven Boykey Sidley, while agreeing that Borowitz is a scaffold for his opinions, points out that his character is better looking, smarter, more charismatic and a physics boffin.

“But yes, I am grumpy about the same things; people who believe in all sorts of demonstrably untrue rubbish ranging from conspiracy theorists to homeopathy to creationists,” Sidley says.
