A: On my coffee table, I like to stack groups of books that are beautiful and diverse…the kind guests would want to flip through
and ask me about (the right book can spark a great conversation). On my table right now: Perry Guillot’s Privet Lives,
Francois Halard’s Visite Privée, Our Universe by Neil Degrasse Tyson and a book about John Fowler’s work.
I am always looking for my next book. I actually just finished reading Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre — I don’t know how
I had never read that before. Rochester ranks up there with Heathcliff in intensity. A friend just recommended Penelope
by Rebecca Harrington, and I’m looking forward to Tom Wolfe’s latest novel this fall.
