Maggie Righetti is not an author of a novel, short story or a poem. She is the author of, "Crocheting in Plain English". I learned to read the crochet short hand language (used to write patterns in books and magazines) from that book. It was like having a friend sitting with me. She wrote of her experiences connected to the different facets of learning crochet and its written language. The book is her story, a tutorial, and when you've read the tutorial, it's an excellent reference book too. At that lunch I would like to say thank you to her, and get her to sign my well used book.

I think about Edgar Allan Poe many times because I have a lot of questions that I want to ask him about his novels and short stories (What is it about The Death? What was he thinking about while writing the stories?). I think he has a serious problems in his life. When I read his biography, I read that his life was always misserable until his death, as if no happiness at all. I think I really want to help him moving forward.

Hunter S Thompson, Charles Bukowski and William Burroughs. Now that would be a party!
I also wouldn't mind having a beer with the actors who have played these writers, Johnny Depp and Matt Dillion!

Roald Dahl or Philip Pullman, I'd be happy with either of those.

I would probably choose Hunter S. Thompson, William Burroughs, and Jack Kerouac. Oh, and Rob Sheffield, John Sellers, and Chuck Klosterman. These would be at different times, of course.

That is one of my favorite books. I read it in a day. It wasn't challenging or particularly amazing, but I think sometimes that is a good thing.
