He lives with his wife and three little children in Gunning, a small town on the southern tablelands of NSW. David Malouf is the author of poems, novels, librettos, plays and essays. In he was the sixteenth Neustadt Laureat. He lives in Sydney. Leigh Redhead has worked on a prawn trawler, as a masseuse, stripper and apprentice chef. I became more interested in reading stories about ordinary people who resorted to crime — what was their motivation?
What drove them to such extremes? I dabbled in police procedurals, which were okay, but the characters, being cops, were a little straight for my liking. Then I got into PI books and I absolutely loved them. I had the pleasure of working out not only who, but why, and after my upbringing I related to characters who often had to work outside the law. I liked noir thrillers for the same reason, but always wanted the femme fatale to win instead of being punished at the end.
I first started Peepshow in , because I was working in peepshows in Melbourne and wanted to write about that world. I was pretty sick of how strippers are usually portrayed in books and on screen generally getting cut up on the autopsy table. I started writing it and it was terrible. Nothing happened beyond Simone lying around in the peeps pondering her Brazilian and her existential angst while she watched the interplay between the coloured lights and the mirrors in the peepshow booth. It was a bit of a light bulb moment.
Why not make Simone a private investigator? So then I went and did the actual Certificate IV Inquiry Agents course for research, and I came up with the plot when I found out that a strip club boss had molested a couple of my friends. I was so angry I wanted to kill him, so I did the next best thing: fictionalised him and had his mutilated body wash up on St Kilda Beach. I wrote the first draft in long hand in 4 black and red A4 notebooks and it took me about a year, then did a couple more drafts on a laptop over the next two years. I also read a lot of true crime and I think receiving Sex Tips for Girls by Cynthia Heimel for my 13 th birthday my mum said it had advice on giving a blow-job influenced how I write humour.
