We’re in Try Thai, a two-storey cocktail-pink restaurant I discovered a few years ago when visiting my sister who was studying in Manchester Following our respective readings at Manchester Literature Festival, I convince Terrance Hayes, Victoria Adukwei Bulley, Kayo Chingonyi and Sarah Perry to follow Google Maps from Central Library through a few dark alleyways to Chinatown in search of ‘this great Thai place I know’   Have you ever confidently remembered the food somewhere being great but suddenly − in certain company − you worry the whole walk there they’ll be like ‘great food?’ and forever you will be known as the one who makes bad dinner suggestions…?   Terrance Hayes: I refuse to answer any serious questions   Rachel Long: I’ll have to make all this up then   TH: Yeah, make it up I’d be more interested in reading a made-up interview than a real one   RL: OK Why do you wear two watches?   TH: I’m a timelord Umm, my daughter got me this one [left wrist] when she was seven, and then when the iWatch was invented they all got together and got me this [right wrist] So two watches   Victoria Adukwei Bulley: Whereabouts do you live in New York?   TH: In the village Pretty much NYU, but a little further out – in faculty housing   RL: So, you’re like roomies with Sharon Olds?   TH: Yeah, we’re in the same building I was in the elevator the other day and I felt this… like I felt rather than saw her Sharon Olds is a Scorpio too, so I could just feel this energy, this ball of pink and white Her white hair Yeah, she’s in the building Last time I saw her she was talking about cats, and spiders I can tell you a story like that about Zadie [Smith] too… It was my first time meeting her in person I knew who she was, of course, but as soon as I met her I was like… she’s a Scorpio   RL: Is this the wine list?
