What book do you wish you had written?
Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind (1936)
What would you do if you were not a literary critic?
Worry less about my future! Seriously though, I love doing what I do now, but if I couldn’t be a literary critic anymore, for whatever reason, I’d probably be a journalist or secondary school teacher.
When was the last time you looked at Wikipedia?
Last month, to settle a bet.
What event had the greatest impact on history in Ireland?
If I had to choose one, I’d say Anglo-Irish Union (1801), but that’s obviously influenced by my research area!
What are you reading now?
I’ve just started Burney’s Evelina (1778) – a book I’ve meant to read for ages but am only getting around to now.
