Literary Encounter: A.M. Homes
A.M. Homes is a hilarious nutcase. She read from her latest novel "This Book Will Save Your Life." She kept getting distracted by the sounds of the bookstore, like a phone ringing or someone typing on a computer. She'd go on these riffs--"is someone typing a short story while I'm reading?"--voices coming out of nowhere. She's a closet stand up comic, I'm telling you!
I asked her who would play her in the movie of her life. She said, "Lassie."
(Oh, some of you would be happy to know that she's a Mac user.)
