Louise Peterkin's debut collection The Night Jar (published by Salt) adds new twists on fairy tales, Bond henchmen, Hitchcock and HP Lovecraft to its devil's brew. Based in Edinburgh, Peterkin discusses how her love of classic horror films inspired poems, how to approach the work of great artists whose personal life and views are troubling, and her recurring character, a nun called Sister Agnieszka.
