Jian Ghomeshi of Canada’s CBC Radio sat down with J.K. Rowling in New York to talk about not only The Casual Vacancy but also about her relationship with the media. She also speaks about some of the more shocking reviews she has received on her new book for adults.
One of the funniest things Jo says includes the two laughing about how much “the media is very interested in the media,” which is why so many interviews revolve around her relationship with the media.
CBC Radio: “You don’t give very many interviews, do you?”
Jo: “Well, I feel as if I don’t have enough to say.”
Elsewhere, we hear Rowling state she knows she’ll never write another book that is Harry Potter level in terms of success.
The interview also talks about bullying being dragged into the bedroom now with cyberbullying. “It really feels like they are getting into your head.” This conversation includes a quick note on the tragic suicide of Amanda Todd.
