(1) What is your favorite book? [Bible excluded]
Jessica: There are several I keep coming back to (Bujold’s “A Civil Campaign”, Lewis’ “Till We Have Faces”), but probably at the top of that list is Dorothy L. Sayers’ “Gaudy Night”. I can sink into that story any day, any month, any year. I love the slow, simmering love story. I love the way it places me in the beautiful, green grounds of Oxford. I love the underlying themes of vocation and relationship. And I love Lord Peter Wimsey!
(2) If you could walk into any book, what literary character would you want to be?
Jessica: Hm. Do I get to pick when I would be that character, too? I mean, it’d be lovely to be Miles Vorkosigan strolling around the fantastic celebration that was the emperor’s wedding, but I’d hate to be him when he was trapped in a psychotic, futuristic prison camp! And to be Harriet Vane punting on the river with Lord Peter? Bliss! To be Harriet Vane on trial for murder? Umm . . .
(3) If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Jessica: New Zealand. I fell in love with New Zealand when I read Essie Summers’ descriptions of it as a teenager. And then the Lord of the Rings came out and I couldsee what she’d been talking about all those years . . . and I just fell in love all over again. Those mountains!
