“I have a serious self-loathing problem with Dan Brown going on. I battle with myself for a while about reading the next one, trying to be too cool to pick it up. Alas, it usually ends in me eating Ben & Jerrys from the carton while reading the mass market edition and rooting for Langdon to die. It’s a shame cycle.”

“I love the creative exuberance Baz brings to his projects. I may not always like them, and they may not be to my taste, but I find them fascinating. If he can fan an interest in “Gatsby” in the high school set by icing it with over the top bright-colored frosting and sprinkles, I welcome it.  What’s important is that we keep talking about it.”
