A. My favorite villain is Tom Ripley from The Talented Mr. Ripley by Elizabeth Highsmith.
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. If I could meet Larry Darrell a character from Somerset Maugham's The Razor's Edge, I would ask him if, when he saw God in the Himalayas, he knew beyond words that he could not marry Isabel and that he had no other purpose but to live humbly and serve others? He is the character in literature whose spiritual experience foreshadowed my own.
