Grateful appreciation to a friend I shall name Jackie who told me about Elena Ferrante, an Italian novelist who wrote a letter to her publishing house explaining why she *would not* participate in the marketing of her novel.
Jackie and I were talking about writers and privacy.
Here’s a great blog post about Elena Ferrante’s letter. Read it here.
I sympathize with the novelist, and am delighted that her novel Troubling Love is doing so well.
To the novelist, congratulations!
(errr, I mean Matt)
