Meg Rosoff, subject of the Daily Mail’s What book… feature:
…ARE YOU READING NOW?
I never read one book at a time. My main book at the moment is Time Will Darken It by William Maxwell, but I’ve been reading the three books of Parade’s End by Ford Madox Ford for the past few months and keep putting it away because I can’t bear for it to end.
…WOULD YOU TAKE TO A DESERT ISLAND?
Moby Dick by Herman Melville. Though I’ve read it before, I’d like to get to grips with the whole process of rendering blubber so that I could do it if called upon.
