You’d Better Make Them Doubles

Megan Abbott, author of the new novel You Will Know Me (Little, Brown), is the latest focus of The New York Times Book Review’s “By the Book” interview column. Abbott’s answers in the past to questions about her work and the crime-fiction genre in general have almost invariably proved to be interesting, and that’s no less true here. When pressed to say which three writers, dead or alive, she would want to invite to a dinner party, she responds:
Emily Brontë, Freud, and Flannery O’Connor. That’s a tough, tough crew. I’m not getting away with anything at that table. There will definitely need to be martinis.
