Karen Heuler’s latest novel, The Splendid City, is something truly special. It tells the story of a young witch, Eleanor and her cat, Stan, who is in reality an annoying man… whom she dealt with in the most practical fashion. It is a brilliantly unique book – do check our our review – and it was a pleasure to chat to Karen about The Splendid City, Stan and writing more generally.
GdM: Can you please describe The Splendid City in one sentence for our readers?
A novice witch transforms a bullying coworker into a cat and her coven sends them both to a state that has broken away from the USA and thrives on parades, giveaways, and surprises.
