David Peace interviewed by Andy Hedgecock
Back in the autumn of 2004, we interviewed David Peace (issue 39 of The Third Alternative). At that point Peace's reputation was growing: he had been nominated as one of Granta's 'Best of Young British Novelists of 2003'. And he had published his first five books – a dark and disturbing quintet consisting of gothic misadventures in a Yorkshire landscape related in the 'Red Riding' quartet and GB84, Peace's visionary inquest into the miner's strike of the mid-1980s. Together they constitute a secret history of a decade of corruption and upheaval which redefined British society, politics and culture, and which continues to influence – and to limit – the way we live now.
