I admit it.  I’ve always loved this questionnaire.  The one that asks probing lateral questions to reveal what sort of person you really are, or what sort of person you’d like to imagine you are…or would like other people to think you are.

Norman Geras runs his own blog version each Friday, and very kindly fulfilled my secret longing by asking me to answer twenty of his thirty questions. Naturally, I skipped the difficult ones (‘what would you do with the UN?’) in favour of the more subtle intellectual ones, such as ‘Who would play you in the movie of your life?’

It was great fun discovering what my answers were.  Have a look.

    I want to pitch a tent inside your nutty brain.

      I’d love to have you. But you’ll have to watch out for the squirrel.

    Thanks for the link, have just had a fascinating time clicking names at random (had heard for very few people on his list) and reading other interviews.
    And now I want Eddie Izzard too, it always used to be Juliette Binoche, but he would make me seem so much more exciting:-)
    much love

    All excellent stuff. And especial Yays to Compassion, Thinking about death every day, and The Blue Red & Grey! Are you a Jewish Buddhist, by any chance?

    Cracking profile, Meg – knocks most of the others (mine included!) into a cocked hat. Love the killer whale identity …!
    Bon courage and best for your forthcoming publication.

    So when was the highpoint of civilisation? And will it be a setting for a novel?
