Conversations Among Insane People

This week The Hairpin learned a lot about Amelia Gray. We knew her already, of course—her book THREATS is disturbing and tender and only the first novel to come from this talented young writer—but here, in her exchange with an unsatisfied reader named Earl from Louisiana, Amelia manages to be both gracious and biting, and she also gives John Grisham a bit of burn.

A reproduction of Earl’s letter, her reply, and a check covering the cost of Grisham’s A Time to Kill are all available here, in “Amelia Gray Responds to a Hater.” As she herself sums it up, “a sweet exchange, all in all.”

Brava, Amelia.
