Do you read paperbacks or ebooks?
Paperbacks. I’m clumsy and like to read in the bath.
How do you organise your books?
Ones we’ll reread live in the living room; others go in the spare room. Books that I’ve fallen hard for and wish I’d been the one to write live with me, in a tottering stack, on my desk.
Cloud Atlas or Wolf Hall, I haven’t kept count.
What’s the book you own but have never read?
Paradise Lost’s the one I’m least repentant about.
What’s on your nightstand?
Christopher Isherwood, lip balm, scrunched up receipts.
What’s in your handbag?
Work keys, home keys, moisturiser, glasses case, wallet, phone, three biros, none of which work. *darkly* But that’s just the top layer…
What’s the book you foist on people?
Currently Pure by Andrew Miller, several years after everyone else has read it.
Name the four books that mean the world to you
Lorette Nobécourt‘s La Démangeaison (The Itch), about unruly skin; Hygiène de l’Assassin (Hygiene and the Assassin) by Amélie Nothomb, for its strangeness and ambition. And two films, if I may: Muriel’s Wedding (“Goodbye, Porpoise Spit!”), and Father of my Children, by Mia Hansen-Løve.
