Author Spotlight: Adria J. Cimino

Adria, what are your Top 3 Favorite Books of all time?

Such a difficult question, but these three are always quite near the top…

The Great Gatsby

To Kill a Mockingbird

The Master and Margarita

 

If you could be best friends with a character in a book, who would you pick? And why?

Idgie of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café because she is loyal, compassionate and strong.

 

Do you have any #literaryconfessions?

As a journalist, I interviewed John Updike — but I hadn’t read his books. Oops! To make it a little bit less embarrassing, it was a very last-minute assignment.

 

Do you have a #literarycrush?

Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights

 

What is your favorite color?

Purple, just like my mom. And now my little girl loves purple too. I think it’s hereditary!

 

What is your favorite opening line to a book?

It’s actually an opening paragraph so I hope this counts. From The Lover by Marguerite Duras:

One day, I was already old, in the entrance of a public place a man came up to me. He introduced himself and said, “I’ve known you for years. Everyone says you were beautiful when you were young, but I want to tell you I think you’re more beautiful now than then. Rather than your face as a young woman, I prefer your face as it is now. Ravaged.”

What is your favorite food?
