So, last night I finished "the Night Strangers" by Chris Bohjalian.
It was very satisfyingly....creepy. And I liked it very much. It was kind of a good old fashioned ghost story. Kind of.
(this is why this post is a NOT review, because I can't write one )
Just wanted you to know I finished and it was good. Bohjalian is a really diverse writer--and it's always well done. That takes a lot of talent
Read it if you kind of like to be creeped out....
and now, the Booking Through Thursday question is:
If you could sit down and interview anyone, who would it be?
And, what would you ask them?
That is a really difficult question to answer.
Tonight, I am thinking Julia Child. I just ordered a book of letters of hers. A book about her correspondence with a friend. So besides her cooking, I would love to know about her correspondences throughout the years...she was a great letter writer. (as I want to be)
I think that what I would ask her tho, has nothing to do with her life as a cook, or a military spy, or her letter writing.... I would ask her about how she dealt with her and her husband's infertility.
REMEMBER, I am thinking that since this is a pretend interview, I wouldn't be hurting her feelings by bringing it up. I wouldn't seem insensitive. I would never want to do that to Julia or anybody. IT IS PRETEND....and I would just like to know how she got thru that. That maybe she could be an inspiration for others in the same situation.
It is touched on---ever so briefly---in her book and the movie, Julie and Julia.
That's what I would ask her about.
