Every now and then it hits me between the eyes like the hoof of an irate donkey - why do I bother writing?

Anne’s murderous vagina, outsourcing, and projectile vomiting!

So, Anne’s vagina nearly killed me today. See, I was sitting at my writing station eating an orange, being the normal innocent halo-wearing angel I usually am. You know, editing erotica and watching adult videos for, uh, reference and stuff. And then out of nowhere Anne busts out with-

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for.
