Family Smatters

James Jeffrey, Annika Smethurst

James Jeffrey agrees with Kurt Vonnegut that the purpose of life is, simply, to fart around. It's a characteristically flip motto for a writer whose family animus, as he calls it, was deep and dark. He talks with fellow journalist Annika Smethurst about how his childhood shaped his role as a writer, about the importance of humour in dealing with sadness, and about all the moments in life that make him want to say "strewth".
