A Brief Chat With Joanna Trollope

Joanna Trollope is the bestselling author of many books including Friday Nights, The Other Family and Second Honeymoon among others. Her latest book is Daughters-in-Law.

What was the last book you read and what are you currently reading?
The last book was Kate Grenville's The Lieutenant - terrific, and now I'm immersed in a proof of the new Ann Patchett - State of Wonder - it's brilliant...

Which book from your bookshelf at home is your most treasured & why?
A very old, very battered copy of Rose Macaulay's The Towers of Trebizond, complete with coffee mug rings and sun oil smudges...

Which fictional character do you most identify with?
I would rather like to say Becky Sharp...but I think that Anne Elliott is probably nearer the mark...

What are you working on next?
Aha! But it will be out spring 2012.
