Kate Pullinger on LANDING GEAR
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. My mother was a great one for maxims, me less so. However, I'm a great believe in optimism, however unfounded. Plus I always like to have my next holiday booked and planned.
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. The global banking crisis, and the way the bankers continue to profit from it.
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
A. Reading of course!
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. Definitely the ability to fly.
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. Sally Naldrett, of course, the main character from 'The Mistress of Nothing'! I'd love to find out what really happened to her after she left Lucie Duff Gordon's household.
November 19, 2010I am so looking forward to 'The Mistress of Nothing' coming out in the US. This will be my 'American debut' and I really hope that readers in the US enjoy the book. I'm so pleased to be working with Touchstone, Simon & Schuster.
Publication isn't for another seven weeks.... but the countdown is definitely on!
