Stephenie was interviewed by EW about her new book The Chemist.
Some cool quotes from the interview include this one about…how should we phrase it…a non-factory recommended use for the novel Breaking Dawn.
The book I’d use to squash a bug
Breaking Dawn—it’s heavy. Thick enough to give me some strategic distance from the bug, and I have lots of copies on hand.
There’s also a great quote about her ultimate guests at a dinner party:
The guests at my dream dinner party
There’s a serious version of this dinner, where I would invite Charlotte Brontë, Jane Austen, Louisa May Alcott, L.M. Montgomery, and Shakespeare, but that sounds so intimidating and not really enjoyable. So honestly I’d have to go with people who make me laugh: Mindy Kaling, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Bill Murray, Bill Hader, Aziz Ansari, Mitch Hedberg…. There are so many! How big is the table I’m working with here? And do I have to talk, or can I just listen?
