Are there any particular worlds in books where you’d like to live?
Or where you certainly would NOT want to live?
What about authors? If you were a character, who would you trust to write your life?I don't read fantasy, so I can't think of any fantastical worlds. When I was little I probably would have answered "Narnia" though. Nowadays... I don't know. I read a lot about Stalinist Russia, and I wouldn't want to live there! Places like Rome and Paris are often portrayed as very romantic and chic- Proust's France is lovely- but that's too easy. I'm reading about 19th century Australia right now, all wild and developing, in a very exciting stage of development. There is something romantic about that kind of chaos and anarchy.
If I were a character I would want Margaret Atwood or A.S. Byatt to write my life- two women writers who I think really get women.
