Q & A with Janet Malcolm
On Monday evening, Janet Malcolm did a reading and book signing for her latest book, Two Lives: Gertrude and Alice. We chatted with her briefly before the event about her own literary interests of late:
What books are you currently reading?
Hidden in Plain View: Narrative and Creative Potentials in War and Peace by Gary Saul Morson is “very brilliant. I’m also reading The Life of Tolstoy Later Years by Aylmer Maude, an early translator of Tolstoy. I have also enjoyed Constance Garrett and Ann Dunigan translations of Tolstoy.
Is their anything you’re particularly looking forward to the publication of?
Anna Karenina In Our Time: Seeing More Wisely by Gary Saul Morison.
Do you have standard titles or writers you like to recommend, either within or outside your field?
Have you ever shopped at or visited our store before?
This is my first visit. Book Culture is a wonderful bookstore with such depth of stock, I feel like I can find everything I want here.
