Denise asked Tracy Chevalier:

My favorite of your books that I've read so far is Remarkable Creatures. Do you have a favorite from among the books you've written and, if so, why?

Tracy Chevalier Hi Denise--

Tell me, do you have kids? If so, has anyone ever asked you which you prefer? And how impossible it is to answer the question? I feel like that whenever someone asks me which is my favourite of my books! Like kids, I know their good parts and their flaws. Usually I like the one best that I've just written, as it is still fresh in my mind. But once the dust settles (after several years), I can sort of tell which will last. I suspect Remarkable Creatures will last, because of the friendship between Mary and Elizabeth.
