J- Describe the best dinner you ever had.
C- The chocolate bombe you made me for my birthday that time.
J- That was cake, not dinner. What about the filet mignon and potatoes roasted with garlic, nutmeg and lemon before that?
C- Good, too.
J -Recommend a book that you didn’t write.
C- Flytrap, by Janet Snell.
J -You have excellent taste, if I do say so myself. Which brings me to my next question- What fictional character would you like to date?
C- Your brother-in-law won’t let me date.
J- Bummer!Describe your perfect day.
C- “Waking up, the first and the last privilege, waking up once more.”
J- Elizabeth Hardwick?
J- Why do you write what you write?
C- “I never know what I think about something until I’ve written on it.”
J- Faulkner said that.
C- No less applicable, though.
J -What’s your favorite reaction from a reader?
C- When I bring them to tears, like that newscaster does.
J- Oh yeah. BaBa rocks. Are writers better liars than other people?
C -Yes. Other people add too many examples, and they’re always the wrong ones.
J- Name an artist who inspires you. It doesn't have to be a writer.
C- That would be you, dear.
Thanks to my sister Janet Snell for playing!
