The Questionless Books Interview: Reader Emily Martin

In The Questionless Books Interview, I get a whole bunch of books people (from authors to editors to publishers to sales/publicity/production people, booksellers, designers, librarians, readers, etc) to "answer" a series of unspoken "questions". The results highlight a delightful mix of the opportunities and challenges facing our sector: from doom and gloom to sunshine and rainbows, and every irony in between.

Emily Martin's Bio: I believe we should all aspire to be Carl Sagan. But, since I look terrible in turtlenecks and I couldn't stop reading articles about jellyfish or new translations of Beowulf when I should have been working on my PhD research, I have settled for being wildly happy as a gad-about and dinner party hostess on an silver skied island in the North Atlantic.

A Toronto bookseller writes, “The ultimate combination of books for Anarchist Grade Nine (to 12) girls: “Story of O” and “Things That Keep and Do Not Change” (poetry) by Susan Musgrave. Someone should offer those two books as a package deal; Susan would become rich off poetry royalties.” Her all-time favourite review of her poetry came from a high school student after she gave a reading of her work: “Susan Musgrave has made me hate poetry a little less.”
