because you like his work is like wanting to meet a duck because you like paté.", Margaret Atwood, Negotiating with the Dead: A Writer on Writing

I enjoy the read so much more when I have heard the author talk about the book ahead of reading page 1. Almost as yummy as pate.

Don't know whether I agree with her...I can barely understand Atwood!

barbara: sometimes hearing the author helps, sometimes not.

tin-tin: neither had I.

MOI: the book is a mixed read, some parts are interesting, others not so. It was originally given as a 4 part talk - which I presume would hav ebeen more interesting.
