Lionel Shriver in the NY Times
Saw the profile in the NY Times of Lionel Shriver, whose new novel The Post-Birthday World seems to be everywhere at the moment. I just ordered it, so it will soon be on the night table. She sounds a little wacky here. For example, she changed her name from Margaret Ann to Lionel, at 15--"having discarded a series of earlier aliases, including Tony, she decided, for no particular reason, she said, that her name would be Lionel." Hmmm...interesting. Looking forward to reading the book.
