Author Spotlight: Ashton Lee
Ashton- who are some of your favorite authors?
Harper Lee, Carson McCullers, Truman Capote, Ayn Rand, Michael Crichton, Michael Morris, Patrick Dennis, Agatha Christie, Ellen Gilchrist, Ellen Douglas, Ronlyn Domingue.
What book (or books!) will you always make room for on your shelf?
(See the works of the above.)
Do you have any #literaryconfessions?
There are some classics I couldn’t stand. For instance, I absolutely despised the concept behind “The Scarlet Letter.” The entire persecution angle rubbed me the wrong way, even if it is reflective of that culture. There is so much persecution of all sorts of people in today’s world in so many cultures. I just wanted to punch Nathaniel Hawthorne for going to all that trouble! (Of course, I’d like to think that was his intention—to reveal such persecution as intolerable. But the novel still bothers me!)
Do you have a #literarycrush?
I can’t honestly say I do. I just like literary universes and the way they feel to me as I’m reading.
