the Proust Questionnaire: my answers at Open Book Ontario

this was fun...thanks to Erin Knight of Open Book Ontario & rob mclennan...

"Poet, small press publisher and pornographer Amanda Earl is an exuberant Ottawa enthusiast, her home now for a quarter century. Sex First & Then A Sandwich, her latest chapbook, will be launched at the 19th anniversary celebration of above/ground press at Ottawa's Mercury Lounge on August 9. She'll be joined by Cameron Anstee, Marilyn Irwin and Stephen Brockwell. Visit our Events Page for more details.

In Amanda's delightful and honest response to the Proust Questionnaire, she tells us about leather and cheesecake, synaesthesia and near-death experiences.

The Proust Questionnaire was not invented by Marcel Proust, but it was a much loved game by the French author and many of his contemporaries. The idea behind the questionnaire is that the answers are supposed to reveal the respondent's "true" nature."
