Day 42: Blackberry Wine

Joanne Harris

Joanne Harris is best known for her 1999 novel, Chocolat, which focuses on a young single mother running a chocolate shop in a French village. The novel was adapted into a popular film that premiered in 2000.

According to her website her hobbies include “mooching, lounging, strutting, strumming, priest-baiting and quiet subversion of the system”, although she also enjoys obfuscation, sleaze, rebellion, witchcraft, armed robbery, tea and biscuits. She is not above bribery and would not necessarily refuse an offer involving exotic travel or pink champagne. She works from a shed in her garden, plays bass in the band she first joined when she was 16, is writing a novella for Dr Who and lives with her husband and daughter in a little wood in Yorkshire.”

    Submitted by a fellow bibliophile of great capacity. She reads more than anyone I have ever known. Although I am yet to read the book, I love this quote.
