Outside work, among my passions are contemporary art, post-apocalyptic fiction about the end of civilization, yoga, and the woods between Lerici and Montemarcello. I am always looking for music I might like as much as I like Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Antony and the Johnsons, and Sufjan Stevens. If I were a literary character, I would like to be the cop Jean-Baptiste Adamsberg in Fred Vargas’s noirs. I hold some contrarian opinions: I liked District 9 better than Avatar, I think the Internet should not get the Nobel Peace Prize, and my favorite fashion designers seem to be hopelessly out of fashion (Spanish eveningwear designer Sybilla stopped her collection, and British shoe designer Jane Brown seems to have gone out of business; I buy their vintage pieces on eBay). About five years ago I published a short story in a very minor literary magazine. My husband is a serious foodie and sommelier and belongs to the Grand Jury Européen.
