But here's something that really tickled me, from one of the reviews of the book, which is titled "The Dutch House":
"Ann Patchett Explains Why She Had to Totally Rewrite Her New Novel The Dutch House and Her Problem With Villains":
The Time Magazine interviewer asked if Ms. Patchett had any problems writing from the point of view of a young man, to which Patchett replied:
Danny was a very easy character for me to write because, oddly enough, I have known many men who are smart and charming and funny and interesting, who have no understanding of the fact that their whole life is built on the shoulders of the women who carry them around.There! Doesn't that just make you want to read this book? And possibly every other book this woman has written? Because haven't you known this man Danny yourself, and many others like him?
