Jane Fallon

From a Q & A with Jane Fallon, author of Getting Rid of Matthew:

Which newspaper do you read?

I skim read the Guardian, Metro and the Telegraph every morning and then spend the rest of the day trying to do the Telegraph crossword. I can never resist reading all the tabloids online especially at the weekend. My favourite day of the month is the day Vanity Fair drops through my letterbox.

Who / what is your biggest influence?

Undoubtedly discovering Praxis by Fay Weldon when I was 16 had a major effect on how I viewed literature.

Which literary character would you most like to meet?

Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice.
