Alice Sebold

Alice Sebold is the author of Lucky (1999), The Lovely Bones (2002) and The Almost Moon (2007).

From her Q & A with Anna Metcalfe of the Financial Times:

When did you know you were going to be a writer?

Around age 10 or 11. I began by writing poems. When I showed them to a teacher, my mother was called to the school for a chat. The poems were thought to be too graphic and mature.

What books are currently on your bedside table?

I’ll Go to Bed at Noon by Gerard Woodward; What It Is by Lynda Barry; Doctor Thorne by Anthony Trollope; The Little Mariner by Odysseas Elytis; February House by Sherill Tippins.
