En lycklig man

Per Wästberg får först visa sin vackra skånska gård, vi går genom vita rum, längs trädgårdsgångar kantade med prunkande rabatter fram till lusthuset där bordet redan är dukat med tekoppar och nybakade scones. –Här lever jag mitt munkliv, läser och skriver minst fyra månader varje år, berättade han redan när vi passerade stockrosorna. Med tillägget att han vid sin sida, förstås, har hustrun Sofia. Fliten ger resultat. Nästa vecka kommer fjärde delen av Per Wästbergs memoarer, den som fått namnet Ute i livet och handlar om åren mellan 1980 och 1994.

Interview: The very, very private life of Ms Donna Tartt

Tartt is the author of The Secret History (1992), The Little Friend (2002) and has just published her third novel, The Goldfinch. She was raised in Mississippi and retains a strong southern accent and even stronger southern manners – friendly but formal. She was brought up in a bookish family – the fact that her mother read novels as she drove her car will give you an idea of just how bookish. Tartt left the "snakes, stickers and quicksand" of Mississippi for Bennington College, New England, in 1982 where she studied Classics (just like her protagonists in her debut novel The Secret History).

All three of her books are mysteries and the writer is a little mysterious herself. The Goldfinch tells the story of Theo, a 13-year-old boy who loses his mother in a terrorist bomb in a New York museum.
