Straight-Shooting

Donna Leon knows who she is and what she wants to write about. The fact that she can do this honestly and in still hold to the promise of giving the reader's what they want in spite of herself, was a nice revelation to hear.

The pitfalls that hit most writers in the realm of fame and bias have been strategically cut out of Leon's routine and she tenaciously defends the actions taken to both keep the text relevant and her personal life personal.

I enjoyed this glimpse into the author and her musings on making the perfect companion for her then fledgling career which now spans 20+ years.

junky book interview

didn't realize what a 'want-to-be' pseudo intellectual Leon is.....especially given how even headed hey main character brunetti is. hopefully I'm wrong and she's more than just limousine liberal trying to hide blue collar, middle America roots she's embarrassed of.

Wonderful writer callow youth

Such a fascinating,intelligent and gracious woman. Surely there could have been a more graceful and fluent interviewer. He sounded as though he was reading from a script and did not acknowledge even at a subtle level Donna Leon's completed and thorough answers.
I hope he learned a lot from her. She was a delight and I am sure he will grow into being more expert. I wish him well. There is a real need for training here especially with young inexperienced interviewers. I would do that, it is my professional field.
She deserved better and it is a tribute to her that the interview was as seamless as it almost was. Julie Hewson
