Never heard of her(no surprise!) but some fun/interesting answers:
“What’s your go-to classic? And your favorite book no one else has heard of?
My go-to classic is “Pride and Prejudice,” by Jane Austen. Is there a funnier portrait of anyone in literature than that of Lady Catherine de Bourgh? My favorite book very few other people have heard of is probably “Fashion Is Spinach,” by Elizabeth Hawes. This is a memoir of a fashion designer in the 1930s and Hawes’s critique of the fashion industry is blunt, sharp and wittily observed.”
“What moves you most in a work of literature?
Insightful, keen, even trenchant observations of the minutiae of everyday life. I love it when somebody else has recognized a tiny detail that has also struck me in some way.”
“What are your favorite movies or shows based on books?
“Clueless” (based on “Emma”) and “Mildred Pierce,” both the Joan Crawford and the Kate Winslet versions.
“You’re organizing a literary dinner party. Which three writers, dead or
alive, do you invite?
Jane Austen, Edith Wharton and Charlotte Brontë. All the ladies in the house! Well, think of how lovely that dinner party would be! Unless Charlotte Brontë made it spooky.”
