Not all those who wander are lost.

There are references to your books in a few of their songs. Is that true? If yes, what was the outcome?
Not true. I considered Panic! a compliment. I’ve never done anything legal — but my agent might’ve snuffed some unauthorized ‘Fight Club’ stage plays. Mr. D. Fincher — bless his heart — tells me the big MUSICAL is still likely to happen so I’m supposed to reserve the stage rights. Fingers very crossed.

You must know I love poor Scott Fitzgerald, and any comparison to him gives my heart an erection. He seems to be the first cinematic writer. Maybe he’s stuck in my head as well.
woah-starry-eyed said: Knowing that you might read this scares the shit out of me. That being said, I must tell you that I was home schooled my whole life and when I got to college I wrote my first paper on Invisible Monsters. When doing research on you and the book, I realized that Diary is hardly ever talked about and I feel like it's completely underrated. Opinions? Also, I got a perfect score on my paper :)
Hurray for perfect scores. ( although Sylvia Plath is famous for saying, “They’re not going to put your good marks on your tombstone” ) Diary… every book is an experiment, and ‘Diary’ was voicy third-person meant to imply that it was secretly first-person written by a coward. That might’ve been too many layers of nuance for readers to grasp. Personally, I loved how the villagers used old jewelry to identify the reincarnated savior — based on how each Dali Lama is found. My writing hero — Ira Levin — loved the book so that’s enough for me.
