(And then, with that brief and mildly obnoxious flurry of promotional tweets, she vanished from Twitter again. There was a novel to write.)

Greenwich Reads Together 2016: Author Talk with Emily St. John Mandel - yesterday
Greenwich Reads Together 2016: Author Talk with Emily St. John Mandel:
So I was a little bit late getting to Connecticut, because my driver was pulled over for an illegal turn on our way out of Brooklyn and then it turned out he had an outstanding warrant, which wasn’t for anything terrible—he’d been in a park after hours in Queens—but did cause him to be handcuffed and put in the back of a squad car, and then an officer drove the car service SUV to the 76th precinct where I spent a while watching police officers come and go and trading text messages with a) the car service, which was very sorry but had no drivers closer than an hour away and was confused because I’d forgotten to update my voicemail message and it still said I was out of the country, and b) my lecture agent, who’s wonderful and was exactly as unflappable as I knew she would be, and then eventually the second driver arrived but traffic was bad, so anyway, I’m sorry I missed the high school event this morning but if you’re in Greenwich you might consider coming to the event tonight.

My first choice is always to be in Paris in person, but being on a poster on Boulevard Saint-Germain is a close second.
I just finished Station Eleven and loved it. I'd write more about how much I loved it but limited character.What is your motivation for writing? Do you have an ultimate goal in mind for your writing or are you happy with what you're doing right now? - 7 days ago
I’m glad you loved the book. Motivations: I write because I love to write, also because it pays my mortgage.

AZO, 9:15am, drinking tea and waiting to fly. Yesterday I spent the day talking with college students and professors about the end of the world, which is my major professional activity aside from writing these days, and then went back to my hotel room and watched a presidential candidate say that he hasn’t yet decided whether to accept the democratic process. #dystopia
