      • And yet, when I first heard about her, I think people I knew thought of her writing as . . . fluffy, maybe, not “real” literature, definitely not respectable. Somebody left a copy of Interview at my apartment so I picked it up and was surprised how much I enjoyed it. So that in itself was a lesson for me. She’s sold a lot of books over the years, but I still see her as one who’s not afraid to be an outsider.

      • Well said, Rachel. Seeing her body language in the video gave me an entirely different perspective on her. Makes me want to do a video for my books.

        Or not. Probably not.
