This week’s Booking Through Thursday asks:
“If you could sit down and interview anyone, who would it be?
And, what would you ask them?”
I would like to interview one of my favourite authors, of course.
From among those who are not among us anymore I would like to interview Bram Stoker. I would like to get to know the man who wrote Dracula better. What inspired him to create such a frightening monster, a monster which continues to fascinate us more than a hundred years after Dracula was first published?
From authors who are still with us today John le Carré (aka David John Moore Cornwell) would be my pick. His Smiley Versus Karla Trilogy (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Honourable Schoolboy and Smiley’s People) remain my all time favourites. The fact that he actually worked for the British intelligence services MI5 and MI6 before becoming an author makes him really interesting.
