I would live outside for a year if it meant I could spend an evening at the home of Jonathan Safran Foer and Nicole Krauss.
Going across Europe with Somorset Maugham would be then only experience I need for a life time.
But lately, I have a new literary crush.
That woman is a genius. Pure and Simple.

Nobel Lecture by Toni Morrison - Media Player at Nobelprize.org
"We die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives." She's old now. I don't think that makes her any less awesome.
I want to have lunch with Morrison. I would give up my first-born to have lunch with her.
I think I'm going to invite her to speak at Commencement. She won't, but I want to invite her, none the less. Because it might be my only shot at meeting her. And she's my only living literary crush.
