Leonard's Questions: Elizabeth Benedict

Monday, December 07, 2009

Elizabeth Benedict tells us about her favorite movie, kind of music, and more after her appearance on The Leonard Lopate Show!

 

What have you read or seen over the past year that moved you?
The movie "The Messenger" knocked me over with admiration and awe.  A book I loved: "Life with Sudden Death: A Tale of Moral Hazard and Medical Misadventure" by Michael Downing.
What are you listening to right now?
Whatever my boyfriend has on -- usuallu Bach, Schumann, Beethoven, Mozart -- people like that.  Bartok too.
What's the last great book you read?
Last summer I reread "As I Lay Dying," and I realized that it has in it everything you need to know about how to write fiction.
What's one thing you're a fan of that people might not expect?
Drecky pop music, but I'm not sure how much of a surprise it would be to anyone.
If you only had one day left, how would you spend it in New York City?
1. Eating Chinese dumplings
2. Bike riding along the Hudson
3. A trip to the Cloisters
