Abstract or Description

This PhD consists of two parts. The first part, the creative writing component, is a 70,000-word non-fiction book called Intimate Conversations about Money or Everyone Needs Money In Case They Don’t Die. The book comprises an introduction and twenty-one edited interviews with British people speaking about their experiences of money.

The second part is a 30,000 critical commentary entitled Everyone Needs a Jolly Good Listening to. It includes a discussion of the process of writing the creative component of the PhD. The salient characteristics and history of interview-based books are explored. There is an examination and discussion of the components of the interview: listening, asking questions, recording, and creating a relationship with the interviewee. The process of transcription and editing interviews is also examined and discussed.
