She's apparently done many many interviews lately, and would appreciate some new, off-beat, unusual questions. Post your questions here, and I'll pick my favorites to pass along to Audrey.
Her interview will run in September's State of the Thing newsletter, so I need to gather all the questions by September 1st, 2009.
1) Hot dogs: mustard only or mustard & catsup?
2) Do you listen to music regularly? If so, what type?
3) If you could invite 3 famous people (living, dead, fictional) to a dinner party who would they be and why?
4) Would you consider yourself an optimist or a pessimist?
5) If you were going to be stuck on an island in the middle of the ocean and could only bring 3 books with you, which ones would they be? Why?
6) As a child, when coloring, did you color within the lines or outside the lines?
Oh, now I'm salivating... I'm going to spend the weekend dreaming of paper.
Oh, I have seriously considered moving to Michigan, just to be near that store.
How did the labelling of age difference relationships as cradle snatching and the greater social acceptance of older man/younger woman versus older woman/younger man within society influence you as you wrote the Time Travellers Wife?
I can hardly wait to see the interview, as I loved Time Travelers Wife
Sorry, I can't think of any offbeat questions, but I ALWAYS want to know what three ( or more) books my favorite writers would recommend. Some have that on their websites and it never fails to give me good reading when I follow up.
That's a good one.
In addition to her work space, any rituals before writing?
(if anyone has advice on the LT-preferred way of warning for spoilers, please let me know and I'll edit my post; for the purposes of the newsletter, perhaps you could encrypt the question and answer in ROT13?)
I really love The Time Traveler's Wife, the writing is beautiful and the story is heartwrenching. I have always read the story and the ending particularly as a very painful reflection of women who are merely appendages to their male partners. I think this is reflected in the title, throughout the story and was brought home in the ending when Claire is left, still waiting for Henry, like always. I always hated that the ending didn't redeem her from this role, but I guess the world doesn't either. I am no literary critic, though. Is my reading off-base? Did you have any social commentary in mind when writing TTW?
I wouldn't even bother in this thread. Presumably, people who have questions for Ms. Niffenegger have read this book.
Probably, but better safe than sorry. I think what you've done, Kwill, serves the purpose. If I didn't want to know, that would be enough to make me skip the post. And I'd appreciate it.
